When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

Winner of Best Screenplay and Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix at Cannes last year, Lynne Ramsay’s (Morvern Callar, We Need To Talk About Kevin) latest film is garnering rave reviews all around.
