Based on the British children’s novel Here Be Monsters by Alan Snow, The Boxtrolls is a meticulously crafted, fast-paced adventure, and a sumptuous visual treat. Deep below the streets of Cheesebridge lies a cavernous underground world where a community of quirky, mischievous trash collectors known as the Boxtrolls live. Living among these rectangular monsters is Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Game of Thrones), a human orphan boy raised as one of their own. Through him, we learn that these creatures aren’t so scary after all. With the voices of Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, and Isaac Hempstead. Academy Award Nominee.
