From Fri 7 Mar
When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
Beautifully animated, smartly written, and stocked with singalong songs, Frozen adds another worthy entry to the Disney canon.
“The film’s shaggy-dog, sort-of-whodunit yarn offers laughs and energy that make this Anderson’s most fun film since Rushmore.” Dave Calhoune, Time Out
A Wes Anderson (Moonlight Kingdom) new-minted classic. The adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (newcomer Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his trusted friend and ally. When a devoted guest (Tilda Swinton) bequeaths Gustave a priceless painting, the suspicions of detective Henckels (Edward Norton) are aroused. Frantic adventures ensue, involving numerous roguish characters played by Anderson regulars including Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson.
It’s difficult not to think that “quirky” and “idiosyncratic” weren’t coined expressly for Anderson’s body of work. This is glorious fun!
