Gratz, Joann Sfar, Michal Socha Release Date: Aug. 7 (lim­ited) Box Of­fice: $340,540 do­mes­tic Rot­ten Toma­toes: 70% Synop­sis: When ex­iled artist and poet Mustafa em­barks on a jour­ney home with his house­keeper and her daugh­ter; the trio must evade the au­thor­i­ties who fear that the truth in Mustafa’s words will in­cite re­bel­lion. The Word: “The Prophet beau­ti­fully up­dates a beloved global clas­sic for mod­ern fam­ily au­di­ences, with a daz­zling ar­ray of an­i­ma­tion styles to fill the eyes (and to hold kids’ at­ten­tion). Po­lit­i­cal and so­cial is­sues are height­ened. ... The over­all vis­ual ef­fect is com­pa­ra­ble to om­nibus films such as Paris, Je t’aime, but each story here is ex­quis­ite.” — Nora Lee Man­del, Film-For­ward.
