EARLY MAN (PG)

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - WEDDINGS - KIDS WILL AB­SO­LUTELY LOVE THE MADCAP EARLY MAN.

KEEP­ING EV­ERY­THING PRIMITIVE AND PROPER, UK, 89 MIN Next to Pixar, the most re­li­ably cre­ative brand in kids’ movie en­ter­tain­ment is Aard­man, the Bri­tish stu­dio spe­cial­is­ing in stop-mo­tion clay­ma­tion. This is the first re­lease since 2015’s won­der­ful Shaun the Sheep, and it will not dis­ap­point its tar­get au­di­ence in any way. Kids will ab­so­lutely love the movie, which jams both clev­er­ness and silli­ness into ev­ery frame. An unashamedly madcap (but never too manic) story tracks the heroic ex­ploits of Dug (voiced by Os­car win­ner Ed­die Red­mayne), a primitive hunter-gath­erer who will need to be­come mankind’s first soc­cer star if he is to save his vil­lage from de­struc­tion. Co-stars Tom Hid­dle­ston, Maisie Williams, Tim­o­thy Spall.
