Isle of Dogs
Still not tall enough to ride on the Cobra...!
This highly-rated stop-motion animation is set 20 years in the future, and tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, the 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.

|FPB Report (SA)|
|Language||Infrequent, mild to moderate impact.|
|Violence||Frequent, mild to moderate impact (fantastical violence, contains no blood-letting).|
|Comments||Complex and mature themes presented in an animation context exploring the abuse of power, survival, teamwork, anti-dog movements, dog flu outbreaks, courage, heroism, faith, conspiracy, protection of dogs, deportation, experimentation, commitment, deceit, relationships that are treated sensitively and are suitable for adults and tween viewers. The themes carry a sense of threat and menace and although they are fantastical, some might be disturbing, confusing and distressing to the younger viewers as they do not yet have the ability to distinguish between what is real and unrealistic. Therefore, a 10-12PG rating would be suitable as parental guidance would assist younger viewers in making sense of some of the themes and in recognizing the context and providing reassurance.|
