This French/Swiss stop motion film has earned a rightful nod for the Best Animated Feature Film as well as the Swiss entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th running of the Academy Awards happening this Sunday. Despite being animated and focusing on the life of a young child, the film has a heavy impact.

'Courgette (Zucchini) is an intriguing nickname for a 9-year-old boy. Although his unique story is surprisingly universal. After his mother's disappearance, Courgette is befriended by a police officer Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this strange, at times, hostile environment. Yet with Raymond's help and his new-found friends, Courgette eventually learns to trust and might find true love.'
