Book cinema tickets for My Life as a Courgette

A genuinely touching stop-motion animated feature with dark themes that will call to mind the likes of Coraline or the heyday of Tim Burton, My Life as a Courgette is at times funny and heartbreaking in the same frame. Nine year old Icare, nicknamed 'Courgette' by his late mother, is taken to a foster care centre by a kindly policeman and struggles to fit in. With the help of brash tough kid Simon and fellow new arrival Camille, however, he soon learns that all of them have been through a lot in their young lives.

Screenings taking place before 5.00pm will be the English dubbed version, and evening screenings after 5.00pm will be the subtitled original language version.

This film contains references to alcoholism, childhood trauma and depression, some scenes may be upsetting for younger viewers.
