Our take

Adapting Gabrielle Vincent’s beloved children’s tales, this animated delight uses a cozy watercolor palette to evoke its storybook origins. With perfectly pitched vocal performances, this witty film is a beautiful ode to found family and the connections we make in defiance of social stigmas.
