Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature Film and Best Visual Effects, and winner of the BAFTA for Best Animated Feature Film, director Travis Knight’s breathtaking 2016 stop-motion animation masterpiece KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS comes to The Frida Cinema as part of our $7 Weekend Family Matinees series,
From acclaimed animation studio LAIKA comes the story of Kubo, a young boy who lives a quaint, standard life in a small oceanside village. When he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to avenge a historic grudge, Kubo finds himself on the run with Monkey (voiced by Charlize Theron) and Beetle (voiced by Matthew McConaughey), off on a riveting quest to find his late father’s mystical suit of armour — the only thing that can defeat the spirit, and rescue his family.
“Kubo is bold and daring, telling a truly unique tale set in ancient Japan that is rich with the depth of a story passed down for generations.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News
“Filmgoers who’ve suffered through a summer of superheroes, supervillains and sequels/snarky reboots: we now have something that genuinely casts a spell on viewers.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone
