Fantastic Mr Fox is visionary director Anderson’s first animated film, in which he uses handmade stop-motion animation to tell Roald Dahl’s bestselling children’s story. Mr and Mrs Fox (Clooney and Streep) live an idyllic life with their son Ash (Jason Schwartzman). But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox’s wild animal instincts. He slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground and running out of food, the animals band together to fight against the evil farmers who are determined to capture the audacious Mr Fox at any cost.
