Fantastic Mr Fox (PG)

Dir: Wes Anderson | USA | 2009 | 83 mins
Voice cast | George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Michael Gambon, Jarvis Cocker, Brian Cox, Adrien Brody, Helen McCrory

George Clooney and Meryl Streep give resonant voice to Mr and Mrs Fox in Wes Anderson’s impeccably realised stop-motion animation, adapted from Roald Dahl’s beloved novel for children.

A loving, if distracted father and husband, daring Mr Fox goes on a spree of thefts, breaking a promise to his wife Felicity. But his outrageous exploits also enrage local farmers Boggis (Robin Hurlstone), Bunce (Hugo Guinness), and Bean (Michael Gambon), leading to a battle of survival that pulls in all the family – including Felicity, their teenage son Ash (Jason Schwartzman) and his annoyingly unimpeachable cousin Kristofferson (Eric Chase Anderson) – plus a characterful array of their animal friends.

A delightfully nostalgic and inventive adventure, funny and sweet, Fantastic Mr Fox is a modern classic.

“A dazzlingly imaginative and poetically inflected comic caper” The Telegraph ★★★★
