My Life as a Courgette                                              12A
Ma vie de Courgette                          
For TY and Senior Cycle French we are touring this Oscar-nominated animation, adapted from a YA novel by Girlhood director, Celine Sciamma. Nine-year-old Icare, nicknamed Courgette, moves to a foster home, a place full of rejected kids fighting for survival among the rest of the bullies, loners and misfits. Using a Tim Burton stop-motion style to create big-eyed, fragile beings, the director achieves a very different but hugely affecting film of teen life.
