Based on Paco Roca’s comic of the same title, WRINKLES is an astonishing cocktail of friendship, resistance and life set among the unexpected landscape of an elderly care facility.

The 7:15pm screenings on Sat, July 5th & Sun, July 6th will be presented in the original Spanish language audio with English subtitles. All other screenings will be the English dubbed audio featuring the voices of Martin Sheen & Matthew Modine among others.

Martin Sheen, Matthew Modine & George Coe lead a cast of eccentric characters who rebel against authority in this wonderfully animated and poignant comedy for adults. The story opens with former bank manager Emilio being dispatched to a retirement home by his family. His new roommate is a wily wheeler-dealer named Miguel, who cheerfully swindles small amounts of cash from the more befuddled residents but is also full of handy insider tips that are crucial to survival. Like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in an old folks home, we are introduced to daily pill regimens, electric gates, and nighttime joyrides, as the reality of Emilio’s future life begins to sink in. Using hand-drawn animation, Wrinkles moves freely between the inmates’ daily routines and their more colorful, dementia-induced fantasies, leaving plenty of room for both tears and laughter as it pokes pointed fun at society’s attitude towards the elderly.

“The subject of old age gets the kind of attention it deserves but is too rarely afforded in the affecting Wrinkles.”
– VARIETY

“Poignant animated feature about senior citizens is one the year’s best Spanish films.”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“It’s funny, it’s sad, it’s sweet, it’s heartbreaking! It’s brilliant!”
– THE GUARDIAN

“It’s beautiful, traditionally animated work that doesn’t need noisy CG razzle dazzle to touch the heart and inspire the soul!”
– ANIMATION MAGAZINE

“This movie has the same desolate quality as Philip Larkin’s poem The Building, and yet it is tender and lovable, too.”
– GUARDIAN [UK]

“An unsparing look at the winter of life, salted with humour and emotion.”
– EMPIRE MAGAZINE

“It’s a compact and obliquely moving film, deftly constructed to let the dying of the light arrive, not as sunset, but a kind of dawn.”
– DAILY TELEGRAPH

“The film has a defiance and humor reminiscent of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. It’s far more uplifting than its subject matter might suggest.”
– INDEPENDENT
