20th Century Fox/Indian Paintbrush/American Empirical
(Allison Abbate, Scott Rudin, Wes Anderson & Jeremy Dawson)
USA 🇺🇸 2009
W: Wes Anderson & Noah
Baumbach [based on the novel by Roald Dahl]
Mus: Alexandre Desplat
voices of: George Clooney (Mr. Fox), Meryl Streep
(Felicity Fox), Bill Murray (Clive Badger), Jason Schwartzman (Ash Fox), Willem Dafoe (Rat), Owen Wilson (Coach Skip)
Witty & inventive adaptation of Roald Dahl's
children's book using stop-motion animation which suit the material well.
The voice actors give the characters much personality as
Mr. Fox tries in vain to put aside his hunting roots and be a family man, but temptation is simply too much when he moves into a new home opposite three farms.
Wes Anderson's quirky style in his previous films may have
dissuaded some viewers from checking this one out, but this is very much worth watching, especially if you're a fan of Roald Dahl's original book.
