Voices of Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara, George Takei

Kubo, taking care of his mother, knows that if he stays out past sundown his grandfather and aunts will come and steal his lone remaining eye. After a failed attempt at connecting with the father he never met results in him breaking this rule, Kubo finds himself on a quest with a monkey and a beetle in order to defend himself. This is a very special movie. Unique among American animated flicks, it takes its time relating its abstract themes of loss, memory, and the magic of storytelling. The voice actors do great work.
