Phantom Boy

"Taking their old-school animated style across the Atlantic, directors Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli offer up a heartwarming New York story with 'Phantom Boy,' their second feature collaboration following the 2010 Oscar-nominated 'A Cat in Paris.'" - Hollywood Reporter

“Every superhero has a special ability. For 11-year-old Leo, a hospitalized cancer patient, his talent is astral projection: he leaves his body behind and floats through walls and over the city and relays what he sees to his corporal body back in the hospital. Leo joins forces with a fellow patient, an injured cop sidelined by a broken leg, to become a crime-fighting team.

“This is a less threatening version of the Big Apple—where everyone speaks French—than in Gotham or Batman and more a love letter to a mythic New York. The contrasting colors give the mostly hand-drawn animation a punch; it looks more pop art than comic book.

“Directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol never overplay the pathos but instead focus on the detective story and the bond between cop and kid.” -Kent Turner, School Library Journal
