George Coe, Matthew Modine and Martin Sheen Join ‘Wrinkles’

GKIDS, a distributor of award-winning animation for both adult and family audiences, has announced the English voice cast for Wrinkles, the Spanish animated film directed by Ignacio Ferreras and based on Paco Roca's award-winning graphic novel. The English voice cast includes George Coe (Archer, Kramer vs. Kramer), Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises, Full Metal Jacket) and Martin Sheen (The Amazing Spider-Man, The West Wing). Recording is complete and US theatrical release is set for early 2014. The GKIDS-produced dub will be available in all English-language foreign territories, with Maria Fuentes at Six Sales handling international sales.

Wrinkles illustrates the visual beauty and tender emotion that can be created by traditional animation, as it tackles a universal subject matter with humor and acerbic wit. 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 an eccentric cast of characters who rebel against institutional authority, while doing everything in their power to avoid being assigned to the dreaded top floor assisted living wing - a dwelling place for lost souls from which there is no return. The hand-drawn animation style allows the film to move freely between the reality-bound daily lives of the 'inmates' and their more colorful dementia-induced fantasies, leaving plenty of room for both tears and laughter and pulling no punches in its critique of society's attitude towards the elderly.
