The Boxtrolls Movie Review

Disclosure:  I was given a copy of “The Boxtrolls” in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.

Although I received this after its release date, I hadn’t been able to see it yet, so I was very excited to watch it.  When this was first announced to be in theaters I wondered how they could make a whole movie out of or about boxes.  Slowly I realized that the creators were so creative.  I have seen how animation is done at one of my press trips, and I can’t imagine the time it took to put this altogether.

The story is cute .  It is about Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), an baby orphan, who lives with the Boxtrolls — this is a  community of quirky, mischievous creatures who inhabit a cavern beneath the city of Cheesebridge. When villainous Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) hatches a plan to get rid of the pretty harmless beings, Eggs decides to go above ground, where he meets and befriends feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, Eggs and Winnifred devise a daring plan to save the Boxtrolls from extermination.

The movie is 1 hour and 40 min approximately.  You can purchase it on Blu-ray on Amazon .  I would recommend it to anyone that would love to see a cute movie with a fun story line.


Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. From empty nesters to living with our oldest and 2 grandchildren while our house is rebuilt after a house fire in 10/2018 my life is something new each day.
