Director Claude Barras uses gorgeous stop-motion animation to tackle difficult subject matter in this delicately told story about a young boy sent to a foster home after the death of his alcoholic mother.
Based on a book by Gilles Paris and adapted by Céline Sciamma (Girlhood), this Oscar-nominated gem is a melancholy journey through childhood tragedy towards a brighter future, mature enough for both adults and children alike to appreciate.
Ellen Page, Nick Offerman and Will Forte lend their voices to the English dubbed version.
Advisory note: This film contains references to alcoholism, childhood trauma and depression. Some scenes may be upsetting for younger viewers.
