'Weekends' is the story of a young boy shuffling between the homes of his recently divorced parents. Surreal dream-like moments mix with the domestic realities of a broken up family in this hand animated film set in 1980's Toronto.
Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three, and he's heading on an epic adventure across the seasons. Will he get back to his family in time for Christmas?
Based on the much-loved children's book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, Revolting Rhymes takes the classic fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella, then mixes them together and serves them with a mischievous twist.
With a rare and 'biting" sense of humor, this exceptional animated feature came as a pure delight.
Look for those small details, like Red's coat made from the brother wolf that she, uh, killed in a most dramatic way. Sure her wolf coat has those little wolf ears at the top of her red "hoodie, but the two legs and paws that Red uses as a sash belt...well, those are the small details that makes this feature a must see. And watch for the little piggy who owns the local bank! These two well told stories unfold in a perfect and satisfying way with the denouements being as refreshing as if you heard them for the first time.
The voices are tremendous and Dominic West as the Wolf is absolutely superb, as he adds an authoritative and nuanced "gravitas" to the role.
BRAVO, Roald Dah's clever and mature screenplay and and Quentin Blake's magnificent visual realizations!
