"In divisive times, Pig and his friends, who consist of maybe a dozen drawn lines apiece, provide much-needed laughter in the tradition of the great Warner Bros. cartoons." - Charles Solomon, Los Angeles Times

MOXIE FLIX: The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales (2017)

January 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Part of a monthly series focusing on essential films for kids to see before they turn 13, MOXIE FLIX are FREE screenings.

Film Synopsis: It’s a hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits. The countryside isn’t always as calm and peaceful as it’s made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. If you think life in the country is a walk in the park, think again! Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family and the anxieties of modern life.
