Focus Features presents Kubo which is Now Playing at Pleasant Hill, California. KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS is going to be one of the best animated films of the year from Jonathan Winchell. This movie is so heartwarming and I knew I would love this movie because of the role between son and mother. The mother stares off into space with a haunted, sad look as the son tries his best to care for her, all without words, a perfect moment that I’d never expect to see. It is set in Japan where a one-eyed kid Kubo (Art Parkinson) who masters the art of origami and storytelling and works to earn his money during the day by entertaining audiences in the middle of a market but he comes home right before sundown to tend to his sick mother. The two evil twins (Rooney Mara) would try to get Kubo’s other eye but he runs fast to join forces with Monkey (Charlize Theron) and a beetle (Matthew McConaughey) on a quest to retrieve the helmet, the sword, and the armor that would prepare Kubo to fight the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes). This quest would unlock Kubo’s family mystery and lead him to fulfill his destiny.
