April and the Extraordinary World

April 29, 2019

A film by Christian Desmares & Franck Ekinci

France, 2015, 103 min

From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Persepolis and the mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes a riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate steampunk universe.

Paris, 1941. A family of scientists is on the brink of discovering a powerful longevity serum when all of a sudden a mysterious force abducts them, leaving their young daughter April behind. Ten years later, April (voiced by Academy Award® nominee Marion Cotillard) lives alone with her dear cat, Darwin, and carries on her family’s research in secret. But she soon finds herself at the center of a shadowy and far-reaching conspiracy, and on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles and cyborg rat spies. Also features a new English dub with the voices of Paul Giamatti, Tony Hale, Susan Sarandon and J.K. Simmons!
