Stu­dios: La Parti Pro­duc­tions, Les Ar­ma­teurs (France/ Bel­gium) Di­rec­tors: Ben­jamin Ren­ner, Stephan Au­bier, Vin­cent Patar Dis­trib­u­tor: GKIDS Re­lease Date: Novem­ber 15 (lim­ited) Rot­ten Toma­toes Rat­ing: 100% Synop­sis: An un­likely friend­ship is born when Ce­les­tine, an artis­tic young mouse who gets cor­nered in a trash­can af­ter an ill-fated jour­ney to the sur­face world of bears, is dis­cov­ered by Ernest, a mu­si­cal bear with a sweet tooth. Af­ter con­vinc­ing him not to ear her, the two form a deep bond, but the crea­tures around them are not al­ways as ac­cept­ing. The Odds: An­i­ma­tion afi­ciona­dos have been chomp­ing at the bit to see this painterly 2D film in the­aters state­side af­ter it has spent the last year charm­ing au­di­ences at fes­ti­vals around the world. With a sto­ry­line that touches on is­sues that are dear to many of the vot­ers’ hearts (role of an artist in so­ci­ety, the del­i­cate bal­ance of friend­ships, etc.), the movie has a strong shot at a nom­i­na­tion, es­pe­cially with indie dar­ling GKIDS pro­mot­ing it in the right cir­cles.
