In the Victorian-era town of Cheesebridge, monster-catcher Archibald Snatcher keeps the locals safe from child-stealing Boxtrolls in return for the promise of a coveted White Hat. Archibald wants to hobnob with the brie-eating great and good, but an allergy to cheese means his social climbing brings him out in hives... and worse. Meanwhile the trolls attempt to live peaceful lives, raising Eggs, a young human changeling, as one of their own beneath the city streets. A wonderfully inventive family film and a great antidote to the Disney-pink-princess-y animated movies out there.
