A beguiling, stunningly crafted stop-motion animated feature that is destined to win your heart, Isle of Dogs takes a generous helping of inspiration from the great Akira Kurosawa.

Wes Anderson’s visionary delight is set in a dystopian future Japan, after an outbreak of ‘canine flu’ leads to all dogs being quarantined on Trash Island, an exile colony. 12-year-old Atari Kobayashi (Koyu Rankin) defies the authorities to embark on a daring rescue mission to the island to save his beloved dog Spots (Liev Schreiber).

Five local dogs - Chief (Bryan Cranston), Rex (Edward Norton), Boss (Bill Murray), Duke (Jeff Goldblum) and King (Bob Balaban) join him, determined to protect and serve Atari on his noble quest. Witty, wise and brimming with charm.
