Wrinkles @ WYNWOOD
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Based on Paco Roca's comic of the same title, WRINKLES is an astonishing cocktail of friendship, resistance and life set among the unexpected landscape of an elderly care facility.
Martin Sheen, Matthew Modine & George Coe lead a cast of eccentric characters who rebel against authority in this wonderfully animated and poignant comedy for adults. The story opens with former bank manager Emilio being dispatched to a retirement home by his family. His new roommate is a wily wheeler-dealer named Miguel, who cheerfully swindles small amounts of cash from the more befuddled residents but is also full of handy insider tips that are crucial to survival. Like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in an old folks home, we are introduced to daily pill regimens, electric gates, and nighttime joyrides, as the reality of Emilio's future life begins to sink in. Using hand-drawn animation, Wrinkles moves freely between the inmates’ daily routines and their more colorful, dementia-induced fantasies, leaving plenty of room for both tears and laughter as it pokes pointed fun at society's attitude towards the elderly.
