    Fantastic Mr. Fox

    2:00 pmNW Film Center, Portland, OR

    Anderson’s first animated film, adapted from a story by legendary children’s author Roald Dahl, is a stop-motion thrill ride through the secret world of animals by way of the terror that is factory farming. Mr. Fox (voiced by George Clooney) and his wife (Meryl Streep), after being trapped following a disastrous farm raid, move to the base of a tree with their gloomy son Ash (Jason Schwartzman) in search of a more peaceful life. However, their tree lies next to a large farming facility run by three suspect farmers, who quickly initiate a scheme to flush the foxes out and hunt them. Naturally, Mr. Fox and crew are not so easily duped, teaming up with their fellow animal friends to launch a counterattack.
