Critically acclaimed and adapted for the screen by Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), Claude Barras’s first animated feature is a funny, engaging film with an unexpected depth and sense of beauty for kids and adults alike. After his mother’s disappearance, Courgette moves into a foster home with orphans of his age. At first struggling to find his place in this strange, at times hostile, environment, Courgette eventually learns to trust others and might find true love.

Screenings on Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 11am are part of the Cinekids Series: £5. A regular fare applies to other screenings.
