This magical animated feature inspired by Belgian writer-illustrator Gabrielle Vincents childrens books is a pure delight. The friendship between a mouse named Celestine, who is being groomed for a career in dentistry, and the bear Ernest, a musician and poet, is beautifully rendered in pen and watercolor drawings. The English-language version is voiced by an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, and Jeffrey Wright. Winner of Frances César Award for Best Animated Feature, and nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards, this enchanting film has become a family favorite.
