Kubo and the Two Strings
Kubo is a young boy living a quiet, normal life in a small village until a vengeful spirit from the past turns his life upside down. While being chased down by various gods and monsters, Kubo goes on a quest with his two guides (a snow monkey and a beetle) to find the one thing that will save him: a magical suit of armor once worn by his late father, a legendary Samurai warrior.
This stop-motion animated film features the voice roles of Charlize Theron, Art Parkinson, Ralph Fiennes, George Takei, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Brenda Vaccaro, Rooney Mara, and Matthew McConaughey.
Kubo and the Two Strings received critical acclaim for its craftsmanship, stunning animation, musical score (including Regina Spektor’s gorgeous rendition of While My Guitar Gently Weeps), and inspiring story. The film won the BAFTA Award for Best Animated Film, and was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Visual Effects. It was the second stop-motion animated film to ever be nominated for Best Visual Effects. (The first such film? The Nightmare Before Christmas.)
