Marcel The Shell With Shoes On | Movie Club Preview Brisbane

Watch Trailer

Get your tissues ready, this one’s so cute it’ll have you in tears… Palace Cinemas invites you to a heartwarming Movie Club Member Preview of the critically acclaimed combined stop-motion animation and live-action adventure from A24, Marcel The Shell With Shoes On.

A runaway hit across the US festival circuit, this mockumentary feature expands a beloved series of internet shorts created by Jenny Slate (who voices Marcel) and Dean Fleischer-Camp (who essentially plays himself). The seamless blend of stop-motion and live action, plus improvised dialogue, gives this charming film an air of magic realism, while Isabella Rossellini’s voice adds daffiness to a delightful cast that includes Rosa Salazar (Brand New Cherry Flavor) and Thomas Mann (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl).

Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope at finding his long-lost family.

Don’t miss this special Move Club Preview of the big-screen debut of a beloved character in this hilarious and heartwarming story about finding connection in the smallest corners!

Event Details:
Monday, December 19 |  6:30pm Screening

“Pack a hankie. But don’t miss this strange, special little film.”

– Variety

“Many films claim to be an antidote to this moment in history, but Marcel’s flick might be the first one I’ve seen in the past two years that actually fits that bill.”

– Hollywood Reporter

“Marcel the Shell” seamlessly marries big ideas with charm and humor (and inventive stop-motion work to boot).
