Wes Anderson is known for his idiosyncratic directing style, mixing in symmetric compositions with bright colors and detailed miniatures. With Fantastic Mr. Fox, he pushes those elements to their max by creating a stop-motion wonder. Featuring the voices of Anderson stalwarts Jason Schwartzmann, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson while also including actors such as George Clooney and Meryl Streep, Fantastic Mr. Fox is the story of a family of foxes living an idyllic home life. But after twelve years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr. Fox’s wild animal instincts and he soon slips back into his old ways as a sneak chicken thief, endangering not only his beloved family but the whole animal community. Utilizing classic stop motion techniques, Anderson brings Roald Dahl’s children’s story to life and argues that being different isn’t bad – it’s fantastic.
