First Friday Film Series presents: Fantastic Mr. Fox

Friday May 6, 2016, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

May 6th: Fantastic Mr. Fox

This animated movie with animal puppets starring George Clooney and Meryl Streep is nothing close to good. It’s in fact terrific.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is a delightful exploration of sibling rivalry, fatherhood, marriage, and identity all shot in stop-motion animation photographed on real sets with real puppets. Of course the usual cast of characters from Anderson’s troupe is here: Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and even Wes Anderson himself.

So come on down to the Piermont library upon a summer’s eve, won’t you? We’re watching Fantastic Mr. Fox on Friday night, May 6, at 7:30. Maybe talk about it a little afterward. Come on over and join us, you won’t regret it.
