“Not only wickedly funny, clever and visually inventive, but tender and touching as well.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
From Aardman Studios, makers of the Wallace and Gromit films, comes this wonderfully “egg-citing” Claymation action/comedy in which the chickens will have their day! On a Yorkshire chicken farm in 1950s England, a budding romance between Rocky the Rooster and Ginger the Chicken leads to a daring escape plan. Both chickens are tired of being repressed by the farm’s owners, the evil Mr. and Mrs. Tweedy, and knowing that they’ll eventually end up on the dinner table, Rocky and Ginger decide to rally their fellow chickens for a great escape from the wicked farmers, leading to a hilarious “chicken run” that no one will ever forget! (Dir. by Peter Lord & Nick Park, 2000, UK, 84 mins., Rated G)
