“Last year, animation distributor GKIDS managed to score two nominations in the AMPAS’ Best Animated Feature Film category: Tom Moore’s Song of the Sea and Isao Takahata’s The Tale of Princess Kaguya. By contrast, their 2015 slate looks less prestigious, with two mixed bags in Extraordinary Tales andKahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, plus the good but forgotten When Marnie Was There. But peak-end bias is real, because GKIDS’ last offering – Brazilian filmmaker Alê Abreu’s stunning Boy and the World – is also their best.” (Via Birth.Movies.Death.)
