When a grandfather offers his shabby old overcoat as a Christmas present to his disappointed granddaughter it reminds him of a story he was told from the old country, Russia, about Akaky, a lowly and lonely office worker whose purchase of an extravagant overcoat makes him the centre of attention. But then, fate takes a ghostly hand… Featuring a mix of delightful Walt Disney-style animation, beautifully rendered 3D animation and a vibrant score – as well as the voice of Cork’s own Cillian Murphy as Akaky – The Overcoat is a vibrant retelling of Gogol’s classic story.  


This screening will include a special event with Giant Animation, creators of The Overcoat. The cast and crew will present a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, including storyboard and character design, suitable for children aged 6-10 years.
