Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Film Society of Lincoln Center (70 Lincoln Center Plaza, Manhattan)
$6 in advance
Using beautifully detailed stop-motion animation, Wes Anderson cleverly and stylishly reimagines Roald Dahl’s slim rambunctious novel about a family of foxes. Sly papa fox (voiced by George Clooney) is unable to resist the temptation of raiding nearby farms, while his wife (Meryl Streep) wishes he’d be a bit more responsible, and his diminutive son (Jason Schwartzman) resents the attention given to a talented cousin (Eric Anderson). Featuring a delightful array of furry friends (including Bill Murray as a badger lawyer).
