In partnership with Screen Argyll we bring you WesFest, an exploration the films of Wes Anderson across the Highlands and Islands this summer. Funded by BFI Major Programmes.
With stop motion Wes Anderson found his dream medium, here he can control every visual element. He takes the Roald Dahl classic and gives it the Wes Anderson treatment, bringing incredible detail into the lives of this reclusive and dysfunctional family group.
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.
This screening is part of Film Feels: Obsession, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at www.filmfeels.co.uk
