Kubo and the Two Strings- tells the story of Kubo a young boy who has magic in his guitar that can manipulate paper in his favor. Kubo and his mother have ran away and are in hiding but like every kid in a movie Kubo doesn't listen to his mother and puts their lives in jeopardy.
The story is about love and memories and how powerful the two are. The story is sweet with memorable characters that lighten up the films dark theme. The winning element here is the style of animation and the execution of it. It took a lot of skill and attention to detail to pull off this film. I always wonder if the characters came out just like the animator pictured in their minds. Loads of fierce competition this year in the best animated feature category. Don't sleep on this one.
