A dream-team of twee icons Roald Dahl and Wes Anderson, Anderson’s stop-motion adaptation of Fantastic Mr. Fox follows the titular Mr. Fox as he balances his responsibilities as a father (he’s a bad one) with his compulsive need to chicken thieve. Breaking a promise to his wife not to return to his poultry plucking ways, Mr. Fox leads a raid on the property of three ornery farmers, endangering the entire animal community in the process.
