“That was pure wild animal craziness.”
Wes Anderson’s first foray into the world of animated feature film making is a delightfully quirky adaptation of the classic children’s book from Roald Dahl.
Mr. and Mrs. Fox live an idyllic home life with their son Ash, until Mr. Fox he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community.
Trapped underground and with not enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers -- Boggis, Bunce and Bean -- who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr. Fox at any cost.
Featuring the voice talents of George Clooney Meryl Streep and Bill Murray, Wes Anderson's stop-motion animation is a feast for the eyes and a joy to behold.
