It just feels so right.
Writer and director Wes Anderson has adapted Roald Dahl's “Fantastic Mr. Fox” to the big screen with the help of live-action puppetry and an all-star cast.
Dahl's book tells the story of Mr. Fox and his family as they match wits with three angry farmers trying to kill them for stealing chickens.
Anderson, with his quirky way of revealing the humor of our dysfunctional lives, seems like the perfect director to transfer Dahl's multi-layered sensibility to film.
The film's live-action puppets wonderfully echo the scratchy and spidery illustrations in Dahl's books and give the movie a uniquely fun feel right from the start.
If Wes Anderson and Roald Dahl aren't enough to convince you that $4.50 and a walk to the Nugget Theater are worth it, how about a voice cast that includes George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Anderson himself? Just go see it.
