MY LIFE AS A COURGETTE (PG)

Runtime 1hr 6min
This multi-award winning, stop-motion animation gained international critical acclaim and narrowly missed out on the 2017 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. A gentle, tender film, it tells the story of a 9-year-old boy (Courgette) who is removed from his unhappy home life and taken to an orphanage. At first he struggles to find his place in the strange and at times hostile environment, but as friendships develop with other children they come to terms with the unkind cards they have been dealt and their new home becomes a place of shared experience, refuge and freedom.
‘Think of ‘My Life as a Courgette’ as less of a children’s film than a film about childhood which children can watch, and you’ll have some idea of the quietly extraordinary tone it manages to strike.’ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
