Watch Oscar Nominated Animated Short For Free

You can watch it free here until January 17th:


One summer in mid-’60s Norway, a seven- year-old girl asks her parents if she and her sisters can have a bicycle. Me and My Moulton provides a glimpse of its young protagonist’s thoughts as she struggles with her sense that her family is a little out of sync with what she perceives as “normal.”

Wistfully observing her best friend’s family, she compares their text-book domestic perfection to her unconventional household. Her loving yet hopelessly out-of-touch parents prove to be a source of quiet embarrassment and anxiety for the young girl.

With its bright palette mirroring the verve and energy of the times, this witty and poignant animation by Torill Kove, creator of the Academy Award®-winning short The Danish Poet, views the creativity and forward-thinking attitudes of the parents through the eyes of their introspective daughter. Me and My Moulton tells the charming story of a young girl whose sensitive nature sometimes makes it difficult for her to be honest with the ones she loves most.
