My Life as a Zucchini

(My Life as a Courgette)

Will Forte and Nick Offerman lend their voices to this Oscar-nominated stop-motion animated feature about a young orphan rebuilding his life.... More

"When nine-year-old Icare accidentally causes the death of his alcoholic mother, he is accompanied to the Fontaines group home by kind policeman Raymond. He at first finds it difficult to fit in, and is desperately homesick: the only reminders of his former life are an empty beer can and his mother's nickname for him, "Courgette." He soon learns that the other children in the home have endured similarly traumatic circumstances. Alice's father is imprisoned for sexual abuse; new arrival Camille witnessed her parents' murder-suicide; and Simon, group leader and bully, lost both his parents to drug overdoses. With the help of the other kids at the centre — and the gentle-hearted Raymond — Courgette gradually comes to find comfort and acceptance in his new home." (Toronto International Film Festival)Hide
