Opening This Week
The Boxtrolls
3 Stars

Nationwide - While "The Boxtrolls" does not match the lingering heartbeat found within "ParaNorman," it is a quirky, imaginative entertainment all the same with an enormous amount to say about parent-child relationships, the trouble with reading a book only by its cover, and the dangers of not asking questions and believing everything one is told.

With Kevin Smith once again moving full throttle ahead with indie-spirited passion projects, it is an exciting proposition waiting to see what he'll dream up next.
