Darien Library presents a new weekly program: Monday Night at the Movies!
This week we are showing "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On".
This animated film tells the story of Marcel, a too-cute-for-words one-inch tall shell who lives with his shell grandmother, Connie. While there used to be a whole community of shell relatives, there is now only Marcel and Connie. The two are discovered by a documentary filmmaker who turns their search for long lost family viral. Poignant, profound, heartwarming, hilarious...all descriptions of this wonderful movie that is a must see on your personal film list. The film is nominated for 32 cinematic awards, including one for Best Motion Picture, Animated, for the upcoming Golden Globes in 2023. Originally a series of short films, the Marcel the Shell With Shoes On shorts were directed by Dean Fleischer-Camp and written by Jenny Slate, and last we looked, had 33 million views!
Variety says, "An unlikely star is born. Marcel is irresistible." Come find out for yourself! See you at the show!
Director: Dean Fleischer-Camp
