Robin Robin is a stop-motion animated short that has the charm and whimsy typical of Aardman Animations. It’s absolutely gorgeous to look at and very sweet at its heart. The story is more of your basic misfit’s tale. Robin (Bronte Carmichael) is a young bird raised by a family of mice, under the leadership of the single Dad Mouse (Adeel Akhta). Mice in this story specialize in sneaking and stealing bits of food from humans, which the clumsy Robin is not very good at. But with the help of Magpie (Richard E. Grant) and the the threat of Cat (Gillian Anderson), Robin may find a Christmas miracle and discover himself. It’s not all too original but it is very winsome.
