This is one of those animations that was actually nominated for an Oscar and it is just plain adorable. The voice talent includes Forrest Whittaker, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H Macy, and Meghan Mulally. This is just lovely, it’s from the Producers of the Triplets of Belleville and The Secrets of Kells, both of which were extraordinary animations. This one is the story of a mouse and bear, and before you decide this is just for kids, you should go see it. It’s really lovely, its why you go to movies, it’s got heart, it’s got soul, it’s got pathos, it’s got humor, it has adorable drawings, and it has great voice talent, and you will find yourself rooting for the characters. This really what movies are all about, and the fact that it is animation in no way offsets that, 4.5 stars
