Australian filmmaker Adam Elliots Oscar® winner for Best Animated Short Film tells the darkly comic biography of Harvie Krumpet, a nobody with perpetual bad luck. Harvie is a working-class Polish boy, diagnosed with Tourettes Syndrome, who is ineptly home-schooled by his mother, giving him a twisted view of the world. From Australian immigration and marriage to parenting and old age, Elliot chronicles Harvies engrossing saga using stop-motion animation and a deadpan narrative delivered by Geoffrey Rush. A mini-Candide Village Voice.
