Marcel the Shell With Shoes On

Presented by Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OKCMOA) at OKCMOA's Noble Theater

“You’re going to love Marcel. He’s a tiny, chatty, one-eyed young seashell who can walk and talk and opine about the marvelous world around him. He lives with his Lesley Stahl-loving grandmother (also a seashell, and voiced by Isabella Rossellini) in an Airbnb when the home’s latest guest, a filmmaker named Dean, decides to make a short documentary about him and post it online. How will Marcel respond to his newfound internet celebrity? And how will it change his life? This feature-length version of the award-winning short collaboration between actress Jenny Slate and director Dean Fleischer-Camp—a hilariously creative mock-documentary combination of live-action and stop-motion animation—might make you think differently about your own humanity. What starts off as a goodnatured, offbeat slice-of-life turns into a deeply moving meditation on kindness, curiosity, community, and learning to accept change and move on.” –Bilge Ebiri, Telluride Film Festival
