Fantastic Mr Fox is an animated tale from the marvelous filmmaking mind of Wes Anderson. The mind behind Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life
Aquatic with Steve Zissou and The Darjeeling Limited tackles his first animated feature with Fantastic Mr. Fox and the results are magnificent.
Based on the legendary 1970 book by Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach), Fantastic Mr Fox also stars Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Owen
Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Eric Anderson.
Anderson utilized handmade stop-motion animation filmmaking techniques to pull off a visual marvel for his first animated film.
Mr and Mrs Fox (Clooney and Streep) are living
the perfect life. With their dream home and their son Ash (Schwartzman), visiting nephew Kristofferson (Anderson), it seems the world is
perfect. Yet, after 12 years of domestic bliss, Mr Fox’s wild side is beginning to rear its nature-calling head. Before long, Mr Fox is stealing chickens from coops again — a life Mrs Fox
thought he had left long ago.
With Mr Fox’s fateful act, he has launched his entire domestic bliss-laden family into a world of danger. The farmers are not amused at the missing chickens and Mr Fox and his family must
head underground to hide. In the end, Mr Fox has to become Fantastic in order to save his family.
