Don’t you just hate it when a film you haven’t seen gets nominated for an award? While a trip to the cinema may answer your problems for the feature films, what about the shorts? We have one for you today – Shaun Tan’s Oscar-nominated short film, The Lost Thing.
Based on Tan’s 2002 kids book with the same name, the story sees a boy discover a strange creature at the beach while out collecting bottle tops. After spending the day with it, he realises it is lost and sets about finding a place where it belongs. While it’s essentially a children’s story, it will appeal to young and old alike.
