Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

Based on a graphic novel by co-director Alberto Vázquez, this dark, animated fairy tale from Spain won the Goya Award for Best Animated Feature. Stranded on an island in a cruel, post-apocalyptic world, a cute, anthropomorphic mouse, her mute avian boyfriend and their teenage friends hatch a dangerous plan to escape in hopes of finding a better life. Home invasion robbery, glue-sniffing rat gangs and assorted demonic tormentors follow, proving that this macabre-yet-good-hearted cartoon is not for children. 76 minutes Unrated.
