There’s something magical about how easily you fall head over heels for a soft-voiced little shell in this sweet, funny, and full-hearted film from co-creators Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate. The character is pretty self-explanatory: Marcel (voiced by Slate) is a shell with shoes on. He inhabits a home in California with his grandmother, Connie (voiced with astounding sincerity by Isabella Rossellini), and befriends a documentary filmmaker (Dean Fleischer-Camp, presumably with shoes on) who’s renting the house from its human owners. What follows is an inventive, heart-warming, and whimsical story about growing up and finding your place in the world.

MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON is the full-length followup to the massively popular short films of the same name animated with adorable stop motion. Everyone on the sparse cast is fantastic, but Isabella Rossellini steals the show with a breathtaking vocal performance packed with pathos, wisdom, and tenderness that feels like your grandma wrapping you in a warm blanket after a cold day. Fun, funny, and perfectly sweet while still touching on themes of loneliness and depression, Marcel’s quest to find his family is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
