About Fantastic Mr. Fox:

In his youth Mr. Fox (George Clooney) was a wily rebel who stole chickens from coops and wrecked havoc on unsuspecting farmers. All that changed when Mrs. Fox (Meryl Streep) became pregnant. Now Mr. Fox spends his days working a respectable post writing a column for the local newspaper and living a well-mannered, responsible life with his wife and son, Ash (Jason Schwartzman), but how long can this wild animal be caged by marriage and family?
AdvertisementAs a reward to himself Mr. Fox buys a nice treehouse in a pretigious part of the valley for his family to live in. There’s only one catch: the tree overlooks the farms of Boggis, Bunce, and Bean, three men described by Mr. Fox’s realtor, Badger (Bill Murray), as ” three of the meanest, nastiest, and ugliest farmers in the history of this valley.” Soon, Mr. Fox can’t resist going back to his old ways of causing trouble, giving the three farmers reason to retaliate. They bomb Fox’s house and destroy the valley, making all the animals that inhabit there homeless. The only chance the animals have for survival is to band together and fight back against the oppressive farmers.

Using the retro device of stop-motion animation writer/director Wes Anderson uses his knack for visuals to create a feast for the eyes. Added to that are a soundtrack that includes The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys and Anderson’s usual wit and comedy. The final product is a film that feels timeless, yet refreshingly new.
