(Les Films Sau­vages, Les Films Pel­léas | GKIDS) Di­rec­tor: Sébastien Lau­den­bach Re­lease Date: July 21, 2017 Rot­ten Toma­toes Score: 100% Syn­op­sis: Based on one of the grim­mer Grimm fairy tales, the film cen­ters on the at­tempt by an in­no­cent young woman, who has suf­fered man­ual mu­ti­la­tions, to es­cape en­slave­ment by the Devil, to whom her fa­ther sold her. She is aided along the way by a benev­o­lent prince and a goddess. Box Of­fice to Date: $21,800 The Word: “The lat­est en­try in the re­cent string of drawn an­i­mated films from Europe. Made on small bud­gets, th­ese films present more in­di­vid­ual vi­sions than their big-stu­dio Amer­i­can coun­ter­parts. Girl is a wel­come re­minder that an­i­ma­tion doesn’t have to be syn­ony­mous with re­al­is­ti­cally ren­dered CG, but can be a means of artis­tic ex­pres­sion as uniquely per­sonal as a sig­na­ture.” — Charles Solomon, Los An­ge­les Times. Nom­i­na­tion Chances: If the last few years’ nom­i­na­tion lists are any gauge, this might have a shot at fill­ing the cat­e­gory’s artsy im­port slot.
