Phantom Boy

An 11-year-old boy becomes an unlikely superhero when he discovers that he has the ability to leave his body and fly through walls.

The highly anticipated new film from the Academy Award®-nominated writers and directors of A Cat in Paris is a stylish noir caper, set in the shadowy streets and alleyways of New York.
*Please note: This film screens in French with English subtitles.

Leo has a secret. A mysterious illness has transformed him into a phantom boy, able to leave the confines of his body and explore the city as a ghostly apparition. While in the hospital, he befriends Alex, a New York City cop injured while attempting to capture a nefarious gangster who has taken control of the city’s power supply, throwing the metropolis into chaos. Now they must form an extraordinary duo, using Leo’s phantom powers and Alex’s detective work to foil the plot and save New York from destruction. Phantom Boy continues Gagnol and Felicioli’s fascination with animated film noir, in a heart-thumping adventure that pushes their trademark visual style to literal new heights, as Leo swoops and soars above the greatest skyline in the world.

“Adults should get a kick out of Phantom Boy’s sly humour but the story and the action is for the kids.” (The Globe & Mail)

“A modest, engaging film that reminds viewers of the intimate pleasures of drawn animation in an era of CG blockbusters.” (LA TImes)

“Kids won’t be bothered by the throwback stuff, and most grownups will enjoy the lovingly crafted images of a mythical city at night.” (The Georgia Straight)
