Surprise movie night
|this is at the movie theater where the hubby jumped in the photo|
The BoxTrolls come out at night from underneath the city and take anything that is not nailed down, well they take things that are nailed down too-like numbers off houses. From clocks, toasters, gears, forks, records, and anything else they find laying about in the town they gather it all up and take it to their city beneath the city that is full of treasures and whimsy they have made. The residents of the town fear them and hide in their houses at night.
All the Boxtrolls are troll looking except one little boy named Eggs who grows up and becomes curious of the city above him. One day he ventures into the city during the daylight hours and ends up getting caught by the town's evil worker, Archibald Snatcher . This man gathers up the Boxtrolls trying to rid the city of them and earn the respect of the town's men in power. The ruler of the town is so busy tasting cheese with the other rulers that he does not pay attention to his daughter that keeps warning her dad the BoxTrolls are outside. Things go bad when the evil worker tries to take over the town and kidnaps Winnie.
"Quirky, mischievous and good-hearted, the Boxtrolls are unique creatures who have lovingly raised a human boy named Eggs in a fantastical charming cavern below the bustling streets of Cheesebridge. But when the evil Archibald Snatcher schemes to capture Eggs’ family, it’s up to Eggs and his feisty new friend Winnie to save the Boxtrolls!
Based upon the book Here Be Monsters!, The Boxtrolls features valuable discussion of “good versus evil” and is funny, clever, exciting, and sometimes even profound. It contains some edgy content is recommended for viewers 12 and over."
