The Fantastic Mr. Fox

USA | 2009 | 87 Minutes | Wes Anderson

July 29, 2014

Wes Anderson's delightful adaptation of the Roald Dahl story features an outstanding voice cast (including George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Bill Murray) to tell the whimsical tale of a cunning fox who, with the help of his friends, must outsmart three feeble-minded farmers.

Anderson's first foray into stop-motion animation and children's storytelling is filled with madcap action and the director's distinct sense of style and design – only in cute miniature versions.
