Coraline (PG) - With supporting short 'The Present'
A performance from EMF 2018 by EMF Film Festival
On Friday August 31, 2018 at – in Stage C
While exploring her new home, a girl named Coraline discovers a secret door, behind which lies an alternate world that closely mirrors her own but, in many ways, is better. She rejoices in her discovery, until Other Mother and the rest of her parallel family try to keep her there forever. Coraline must use all her resources and bravery to make it back to her own family and life.
This beautifully animated piece takes Neil Gaiman’s source material and spins it into a fun and sometimes creepy fairy tale. Director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) creates a series of stop-motion set pieces that equally bewilder and delight. A delicious alternative to saccharine-sweet Hollywood standards.
May be unsuitable for younger children.
