Trailer Review

STARR · RHINEBECK

Opens April 19

A sophisticated animated story about a child’s innocent dinner request that turns into an epic adventure when a town protest creates wild obstacles for securing a chicken. (dir.  Sébastien Laudenbach, Chiara Malta, France/Italy, 2023, 73m)

A uniquely styled and all-around delightful hand-drawn family drama, “Chicken for Linda!” premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. I wouldn’t hesitate to call “Chicken for Linda!” the best film of Cannes this year. It’s an entertaining, kid-friendly toon whose power lies in its surprising insights into human behavior.” – Variety
