My sons and I love these stop motion animation films, we were excited to see this from the first teaser trailer we saw last year and were not disappointed.
The Boxtrolls is set in a small steampunk style town called Cheesebridge where above ground we have the people of the town who are mostly normal if not a bit cheese obsessed and below ground in a cavernous hoarders wonderland we have the boxtrolls (basically trolls who wear boxes).

What a fantastic snapshot of a part of Britain's history which is not often looked at. Set in London in 1950, abortion was illegal but we see how money and status will get you anything and that huge difference in circumstances for those women who couldn't pay privately.
Vera Drake is by all accounts a wonderful woman who works hard and helps others in her community who are less fortunate, she is liked by all and always has a smile. She also helps young women who have found themselves 'in the family way' to end their pregnancies, something which is illegal but the way we see Vera carry out the abortions shows a very kind and caring woman who genuinely wants to support these women and… Read more
