U, 92 Minutes. Starring: Alin Arkin, Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow & Christopher Lee. Writer: Peter S. Beagle. Director: Jules Bass & Arthur Rankin Jnr.
Forget 'Ponyo' or 'Spirited Away', if you’re an anime fan 'The Last Unicorn' is a must see! With vocal talents from Jeff Bridges and Christopher Lee, this film gets ever more impressive, with a beautiful soundtrack and animation that could only be described as art.
The story is based on Peter S. Beagles novel of the same name following a Unicorn who believes that she is the last of her kind. Desperate to find the other unicorn she sets out on a quest, on her travels she faces many dangers including the ferocious red bull who tries to catch her. Along with a few eccentric friends she meets along the way the unicorn finds herself in a castle falling in love with a young prince, but at a price…
Sure, at a first glance you would think this to be a children’s adventure film, but I argue for the cause! This film is truly beautiful and although over 25 years old still relevant. I would suggest the film more for the ladies but anyone who loves art, fantasy or is just a major movie buff must see 'The Last Unicorn'. SAMANTHA SMITH.
