This month's movie, presented by Tony Vitto, is Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), a charming, quirky, delightful, primarily stop motion animated film inspired by the Roald Dahl children's story of the same name.
The Film received nominations for the 2010 Golden Globe, Critics Choice and Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature. Time Magazine named it one of "The 25 All-Time Best Animated Films". Critic Steven Rea of the Philidelphia Inquirer said: It's the best animated film of the year, and maybe the best film, period."
After 12 years of bucolic bliss, Mr. Fox (George Clooney) breaks a promise to his wife (Meryl Streep) and raids the farms of their human neighbors, Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Giving in to his animal instincts endangers not only his marriage but also the lives of his family and their animal friends. When the farmers force Mr. Fox and company deep underground, he has to resort to his natural craftiness to rise above the opposition. 2009 - 1hr 27min
