Early Man

Dir. Nick Park. UK, 2018. 1h 29m. Starring Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, Tom Hiddleston, Richard Ayoade, Timothy Spall, Mark Williams, Rob Brydon, Kayvan Novak, Johnny Vegas.

The looming industrial advances of the Bronze Age threatens to destroy the simple lifestyle of a plucky caveman and his ragtag tribe. Nick Park directs Aardman’s joyously silly claymation comedy.

‘This boisterous romp lifted my spirits and tickled my funny bone. In these dark days, that's something to cheer about.’ ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Guardian

‘The film is funny, silly in the best sense and full of deadpan puns, malapropisms and wordplay.’ ★★★★ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
