Iain takes the lead as The Dramatics look at films that, on first glance, could be easily dismissed as children’s films. However, The Dramatics attempt to find something more in this episode. The chosen films selected to discuss this topic include French animation A Town Called Panic, Wes Anderson’s take on Fantastic Mr Fox and Japanese animation Summer Wars.
