The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

Di­rected by By­ron Howard, Rich Moore. Voices of Gin­nifer Good­win, Ja­son Bate­man, Shakira, Idris Elba, JK Sim­mons When a plucky rab­bit named Judy Hopps (Good­win) se­cures a job with the po­lice de­part­ment, she runs up against ill feel­ing from the larger an­i­mals. The cen­tral me­taphor in Dis­ney’s lat­est an­i­ma­tion is a bit shaky – can the “preda­tors” re­ally stand in for op­pressed mi­nori­ties?. But the art work is so cute and the jokes so tight that this cen­tral in­se­cu­rity is eas­ily over­looked. More im­pres­sive still, Zootropolis has a plot you can re­ally, ahem, sink your teeth into. PG cert, gen re­lease, 108 min
