GKIDs to Bring Wrinkles to New York’s IFC Center
Indie distributor GKIDS is getting ready to bring the critically-acclaimed Spanish animated film Wrinkles to New York’s IFC Center this coming July 4. The screening will be followed by a DVD and digital download release on July 15. The film is directed by Ignacio Ferreras and based on Paco Roca’s award-winning graphic novel, the English language voice cast features Martin Sheen, Matthew Modine and George Coe.
Wrinkles tells the story of a former bank manager named Emilio, who was sent to a retirement home by his family. He spends the rest of his days with his cheerful swindler roommate, Miguel. The film uses a hand-drawn animation style that is juxtaposed with the mature story of a retirement home and the eccentric characters that are whiling away the rest of their lives in their own little corner of the world.
