Donald (Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Nanny McPhee) is a 15 year old with an amazing talent for comic book art. He is also dying of leukemia which has made him angry at everyone and everything. His new therapist (Andy Serkis, Lord of the Rings, King Kong) suggests he uses his drawing skills to channel his anger into something he can control. At the same time his friends decide to make sure that Donald doesn’t die before experiencing the important things in (adult) life.
“Some films about such serious material pile up the melodrama, but this isn’t one of them. It manages to be funny in places, without forcing the humour. The cinematography, acting and integration between the animation (which is spectacular) and live action are all fantastic. It’s films like this that remind me of why I love watching films. Highly recommended.” – Freya, MediaFish
