(Fo­li­vari, Panique!, Stu­dio Canal | GKIDS) Di­rec­tors: Pa­trick Im­bert, Ben­jamin Ren­ner Re­lease Date: Win­ter 2017 Syn­op­sis: Three sto­ries of wild, and very wacky, an­i­mals suf­fer­ing crises in their tra­di­tional, nat­u­ral iden­ti­ties. The Word: “Each part of­fers an ar­ray of slap­stick gags, snappy dia­logue and winks at pop cul­ture—in­clud­ing a pos­si­ble ref­er­ence to Fargo in the Christ­mas story— though be­hind all the chaos lies a rather sen­ti­men­tal core.” – Jor­dan Mintzer, The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. Nom­i­na­tion Chances: It’s sheer, giddy, 2D car­tooni­ness should garner sup­port, though the sur­feit of for­eign fes­ti­val faves this year may have a can­celling-out ef­fect. Di­rec­tors Ben­jamin Ren­ner and Pa­trick Im­bert were also be­hind the de­light­ful Os­carand An­nie-nom­i­nated movie Ernest and Ce­les­tine.
