Shaun the Sheep Movie


Dirs. Mark Burton, Richard Starzak. 2015, 84 mins. DCP. Aardman Animations’s beloved sheep Shaun made his debut in the Wallace & Gromit short A Close Shave, had his own TV series, and now winningly stars as the center of chaos in a big-screen stop-motion feature. Bored with the routine of life on the farm, Shaun decides to go on a vacation with his flockmates and triggers a series of mishaps culminating with the Farmer lost in the big city. Their hilarious and heartfelt attempts to rescue him take them undercover as humans while stalked by a ruthless animal catcher. Inspired by Jacques Tati and Buster Keaton, this dialogue-free movie elicits plenty of laughs using music, sound effects, and brilliant physical comedy. Recommended for ages 5+.
