Performance Notes

× Set in a dystopian near-future Japan, Wes Anderson’s delightfully detailed and very beautiful stop-motion animation follows a young boy who goes in search of his dog after the whole species is banished to an island of garbage after a canine-flu outbreak. The ensemble voice cast includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Yoko Ono. In Japanese and English with no subtitles. Kid-friendly (10+) but with mature themes and violence throughout – much like Anderson’s other animated film, Fantastic Mr. Fox. Dir. Wes Anderson, 2017, 101 min.

"For all the visual innovation and apocalyptic futurism in Isle of Dogs, Anderson’s recurring nostalgia for the comforts of old movies is never far away. Of course, that retro style – and his off-kilter humour – are what make his eccentric films so pleasurable…” Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail

Screens with the NFB short The Fox and the Chickadee (7 minutes)
