My Life as a Zucchini
Recommended for ages 12 & up
This wonderfully creative film has been celebrated for its stylized stop-motion animation and sympathetic treatment of life’s hardships. Our protagonist, a boy nicknamed Zucchini, comes to live in a foster home for orphans, where he eventually learns to trust and love others. This accomplished debut feature from director Claude Barras, based on a script by Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. We present the English-language version featuring the voices of Will Forte, Nick Offerman, Ellen Page, and Amy Sedaris. Please note: the film includes references to sexual behavior (in non-explicit language).
