Fantastic Mr. Fox

Wes Anderson's movie is based on Roald Dahl children's novel. It's about a fox (George Clooney) that is unwilling to give up his life of crime even after promising his wife (Meryl Streep). It's in his nature, he is a fox after all, even though he chooses to move his family from a fox hole ("there is a reason why foxes live in holes" he says, but "it makes me feel poor) into the beautiful inside of an old tree. The stealing of chicken and apple cider from the nearby factories gets his family and the entire community of wild animals (who all live peacefully with each other and only eat uncommunicative poultry) in danger, as the evil capitalist farmers set out to kill them. It is also a heartbreaking tale of family and friendship. Since it's a Wes Anderson movie, the soundtrack is warm and fuzzy, and it all looks like you would want to pack your bags and move right into the frame

2009, Regie: Wes Anderson, with the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Wallace Wolodarsky, Eric Anderson, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Jarvis Cocker
