April and the Extraordinary World (2016)

  • april

France/Belgium/Canada | 105 min | PG | DCP | Dir. Christian Desmares & Franck Ekinci

From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Persepolis and the mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes a riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate steampunk universe.

Paris, 1941. A family of scientists is on the brink of discovering a powerful longevity serum when all of a sudden a mysterious force abducts them, leaving their young daughter April behind. Ten years later, April (voiced by Academy Award® nominee Marion Cotillard) lives alone with her dear cat, Darwin, and carries on her family’s research in secret. But she soon finds herself at the center of a shadowy and far-reaching conspiracy, and on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles and cyborg rat spies.

"'April and the Extraordinary World' is a visual delight, an animated French steampunk adventure that is smart, exciting and wonderfully weird." - Bill Goodykoontz (Arizona Republic)
