Kubo and the Two Strings
Taking inspiration from our current exhibition, We Stared at the Moon from the Centre of the Sun, our first Easter holiday family screening is Kubo and the Two Strings.
The film tells the story of Kubo, whose peaceful existence comes crashing down around him after he accidentally summons a vengeful spirit from the past. Setting out with a snow monkey and a beetle (voiced by Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey) to keep him company he must battle the Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) to unlock his family’s secret legacy.
Winner of the 2016 Best Animated Film BAFTA and Oscar-nominated for both Best Animated Feature Film and Best Visual Effects.
“Kubo is an expert storyteller, spinning yarns in the courtyard of his village as the film opens, using origami figures that come to captivating life in a knockout sequence of animation.” – Washington Post
