- QUICK TAKE:
- Documentary style Dramedy: A tiny, childlike anthropomorphic seashell becomes an online sensation after a human documentary filmmaker begins posting his interviews with him.
Dean (voice of DEAN FLEISCHER-CAMP) is a documentary filmmaker whose marriage has ended, resulting in him renting an Airbnb house. There, he's surprised to find a tiny, childlike anthropomorphic seashell, Marcel (voice of JENNY SLATE) -- with one eye and wearing a pair of shoes -- living there with his grandmother, Connie (voice of ISABELLA ROSSELLINI).
Dean begins interviewing both of them, mainly focusing on the ever-resourceful Marcel who longs to find his family that was accidentally taken when the previous tenant dumped their shelter dresser drawer into his bag before leaving.
With Marcel becoming an Internet sensation after Dean posts videos of the interviews, the shell hopes that perhaps that will somehow help him find his missing family and friends.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Possibly. The talking seashell bit might be a similar enough draw for those into talking animal movies.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For some suggestive material and thematic elements.
