From director of Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, comes the wonderfully quirky stop motion, Isle of Dogs. With the voices of Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand, “Wes Anderson’s gorgeous new stop-motion tale is a funny, touching, doggy delight” – The Guardian 4*.
Set in a dystopian futuristic Japan, Mayor Kobayashi decrees all the dogs of Megasaki City must be banished to Trash Island as a result of an outbreak of “dog-flu”. We follow 12 year-old Atari as he sets off alone in a mainature Junior-Turbo prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
