Story


Martin Sheen (The West Wing, The Departed), Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises, Weeds), and George Coe (Funny People, Archer) 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Wrinkles becomes truly gorgeous and heartbreaking, and a reminder that getting old will probably happen to you, too..”
by Sherilyn Connelly [Village Voice]
“..the animation technique deployed is uncluttered 2D, a world away from digital's ability to replicate reality..”
by Jonathan Holland [Variety]
“..the film doesn't wallow in grief; it's a thoughtful and nuanced portrait of a stage of life we often choose not to see..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
