Mr. Fox is Fantastic

We escaped the heat today by driving out to Ballarat for shopping, seeing friends, eating and watching - at last - Fantastic Mr Fox. I have been dying to see this movie since I first heard about it a year or more ago. Roald Dahl is one of my fave authors and Wes Anderson is one of my favourite directors (Bottle Rocket, Life Aquatic, Royal Tenenbaums, I could watch them all day), so how could I not love this? And I did, we all did!

Thanks for the great review, it's boiling here in Canberra too & i know 4 little ones who'd love to see it. My girls have all read Fantastic Mr Fox, we're a big time Roald Dahl family here, think his empire is brilliant!! My eldest did a power point presentation on his life, just for fun??!! Nerd but very interesting character. Love Posie

I love Wes Anderson too! The Darjeeling Limited is my favourite. He has the best way telling his story through the music he chooses.
I loved Mr Fox. I thought it was so funny. I loved Ash with his tube cock and Mrs Fox with her "If what I think is happening is happening...it better not be" line.
And the colours! I came home and crocheted an orange pillow!
