Calamity Jane is a stunning, spirited interpretation of the childhood of Martha Jane Cannary, better known to history as Calamity Jane. When her father is injured during their caravan west, Martha Jane must take charge and learn to drive the family wagon. Utterly practical and bold, she finds increased freedom by dressing as a boy. An eventful road movie with all the elements of a self-respecting western unfolds (good guys and bad guys, a resourceful and Huckleberry Finn-like orphan, a plucky widow, etc.) taking place against striking, hand-drawn vistas. Taking the top prize at the Annecy Animation Festival, this feminist coming-of-age tale is rollicking family-friendly fun, with a story that is dynamic, touching and relevant. D: Rémi Chayé, France, subtitled, 2020, 1h15m.
