At the NuArt: PHANTOM BOY

The delightful new film from the Academy Award-nominated writers and directors of A Cat in Paris is a stylish noir caper, set in the shadowy streets and alleyways of New York. Leo is a bedridden 11-year-old with a secret: he has discovered that he can float free from his body, able to explore the city as a ghostly apparition. While in hospital he befriends Alex, a New York City cop recovering from an injury received while attempting to stop a nefarious gangster who has taken control of the city’s power supply, throwing the metropolis into chaos. Now they must form an extraordinary duo, using Leo’s phantom powers and Alex’s detective smarts to foil the plot and save New York from destruction. Phantom Boy continues Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli’s fascination with animated film noir, in a heart-thumping, fantastic adventure that pushes their trademark visual style to literal new heights, as Leo swoops and soars above the greatest skyline in the world. In English.
