ParaNorman (Rating: PG)
ParaNorman is a stop-motion animated feature made in 3D, unifying two stunning art forms to tell an all-new frightfully funny, magically emotional, and hilariously spooky story.
ParaNorman is set in the town of Blithe Hollow, whose locals profit from mining the town’s history as the site, 300 years ago, of a famous witch hunt. 11-year-old Norman Babcock spends much of his days appreciating scary movies and studying ghost lore. In fact, Norman is gifted with the ability to see and speak with the dead, such as his beloved grandmother. Norman is unexpectedly contacted by his odd uncle Prenderghast, who floors him with the revelation that a centuries-old witch’s curse is real and is about to come true, and that only Norman will be able to stop it from going into overdrive and harming the townspeople. Once a septet of zombies suddenly rises from their graves, Norman finds himself caught in a wild race against time. Worse, the town is up in arms and taking up arms. Norman bravely summons up courage and compassion as he finds his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
ParaNorman, directed by Sam Fell with a screenplay by Chris Butler, features the vocal talents of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Anna Kendrick and Casey Affleck.
Anna Karenina (Rating: 14)
The time is 1874. Vibrant and beautiful, Anna Karenina has what any of her contemporaries would aspire to; she is the wife of Karenin, a high-ranking government official to whom she has borne a son, and her social standing in St Petersburg could scarcely be higher. She journeys to Moscow after a letter from her philandering brother Oblonsky arrives, asking for Anna to come and help save his marriage to Dolly. En route, Anna makes the acquaintance of Countess Vronsky, who is then met at the train station by her son, the dashing cavalry officer Vronsky. When Anna is introduced to Vronsky, there is a mutual spark of instant attraction that cannot be ignored. Anna struggles to regain her equilibrium by rushing home to St. Petersburg, where Vronsky follows her. She attempts to resume her familial routine, but is consumed by thoughts of Vronsky. A passionate affair ensues, which scandalises St Petersburg society. Karenin is placed in an untenable position and is forced to give his wife an ultimatum. In attempting to attain happiness, the decisions Anna makes pierce the veneer of an image-obsessed society, reverberating with romantic and tragic consequences that dramatically change her and the lives of all around her.
Directed by Joe Wright and based on the novel by Leo Tolstoy, the film stars Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
That’s My Boy (Rating: 18)
That’s My Boy begins when a teenage Donny Berger meets the girl of his dreams. Only trouble is she’s his teacher, Mary McGarricle. Donny’s crush goes a little too far and Ms McGarricle goes to jail, leaving Donny to raise their love child, Todd. 30 years later, Todd is all grown up and a successful Wall Street executive. He split from Donny as soon as he got the chance and now hasn’t seen his father in years. But Donny is in trouble, owing tens of thousands to the IRS, and Donny figures that getting in touch with his son is the only way to get the money he needs to stay out of jail. Tracking down Todd on the eve of his wedding to Jamie, Donny crashes the party, turning a weekend of wedding festivities upside down. He’ll have a chance to finally bond with his son, but will Donny do what he knows he needs to do to be a good dad?
The film, directed by Sean Anders and written by David Caspe, stars Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Leighton Meester and James Caan.
