COMMENTS: THIS IS A FANTASY ANIMATION FILM IN WHICH BOXTROLLS ARE FEARED BY ALL AND A GROUP OF MEN ARE HIRED IN ORDER TO HUNT DOWN THE BOXTROLLS UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF MR SNATCHER WHO HUNTS THE BOXTROLLS FOR HIS OWN SELFISH REASONS. THE THEMES ARE OF SELFISH REJECTION, DISHONESTY, DECIET, GREED AND FORMING OF A NEW FRIENDSHIP. OTHER THEMES ARE OF NOT JUDGING A 'BOX' BY IT'S COVER, GOOD VERSUS EVIL, GOOD THRIVING OVER EVIL AND EXPOSING THE TRUTH. LIFE LESSONS FEATURE WITH STRONG PRO-SOCIAL METAPHORS AND MESSAGES BUT WITH A LOW SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE.
