Shaun the Sheep Movie

Part of Family Matinees (Jan-Mar)
Saturday, March 17, 11:00 a.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room

Dirs. Mark Burton, Richard Starzak. 2015, 84 mins. Digital Projection. Just as Aardman Animation's new film Early Man hits screens nationwide, the Museum is bringing back their previous feature. Aardman’s beloved sheep Shaun made his debut in the Wallace & Gromit short A Close Shave, had his own TV series, and winningly stars as the center of chaos in this 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+.
