Get the Kids Out – Free Film and Hike!
Monday November 11, 10:00am – 12:45 pm, Village Hall, 22 Main Street
In Fantastic Mr. Fox, a stop-motion animation film by director Wes Anderson, we meet former chicken thief Mr. Fox, who, after becoming a father, turns to a career in journalism instead. Unfortunately for his family, however, Mr. Fox sneakily returns to nabbing chickens in his midlife, drawing the outrage of local farmers and putting his family in danger. Mr. Fox and his family must hide underground to escape capture, and along with a hilarious band of cohorts, they try to outwit the humans looking for revenge. Free admission. (Wes Anderson, 2009, 88 minutes)
Producer Molly Cooper, who also serves on the Glimmerglass Film Days Steering Committee, will answer questions after the film.
