'Weekends' is the story of a young boy shuffling between the homes of his recently divorced parents. Surreal dream-like moments mix with the domestic realities of a broken up family in this hand animated film set in 1980's Toronto.
Set in the Australian outback, 'Bilby' follows the desert-dwelling marsupial Perry through the trials and tribulations of "parenthood" after he saves a defenseless chick from predators and inadvertently becomes her protector.
I was surprised that this short was up for an Oscar in the best short-animated category. The film, which is about a diverse group of anthropomorphic animals in therapy (led by a reformed pit-bull) is moderately funny but not particularly clever, innovative, nor memorable.
