If animated films are still most commonly associated with children’s fare, the balance shifts decisively to the other end of life in this remarkably dignified film about aging. Increasingly lost in his own memories, as well as a growing burden to his son, Emilio finds himself set adrift in the new world of a “facilitated care unit”—an old folk’s home. His roommate, the fast-talking Miguel, daily transforms their stark landscape into one of magic surrealism, and Emilio is introduced to a fantastical cast of fellow life-travelers on one last great journey. Buoyed by their friendship and camaraderie, Emilio’s memories nonetheless continue to overtake his reality, increasing his fears of being sent to the upper floor for those “beyond recovery”. With the help of Miguel and fellow cohort, Antonia, Emilio is transported on an adventure of calculated resistance, deep friendship and unexpected comedy. A 2D animated feature, Wrinkles is based on the acclaimed comic by Spanish National Comic prizewinner, Paco Roca.
