Isle of Dogs - open caption screening

This is an open caption screening. Open caption simply means there are English subtitles on-screen as well as normal audio, to make the film more accessible to our deaf and hard of hearing community.

The beautifully stop-motion animated Isle of Dogs finds Wes Anderson at his detail-oriented best while telling one of the director's most winsomely charming stories.

In this stop-motion-animated film from writer/director Wes Anderson, an outbreak of canine flu in Japan leads all dogs to be quarantined on an island. A boy (voice of Koyu Rankin) journeys there to rescue his dog Spots (Liev Schreiber), and gets help from a pack of misfit canines who have also been exiled. His quest inspires a group of dog lovers to expose a government conspiracy. The voice cast also includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Yoko Ono.

“Anderson's looking at war, retribution, notions of nationality and nationalism, isolationism, culture and individualism. And he's doing it with stop-motion dogs. He's something else, one of a kind, and we're lucky to have him. Isle of Dogs is sublime.”

ABC Radio

“With its beautiful formal imagery, its gallery of hugely likeable canines and its cheerfully crazy plotting, Isle of Dogs really is a unique experience, and a thoroughly enchanting one.”
