The Prophet

The summer movie season is finally here, and with it comes the usual glut of big-budget blockbusters. But if you’re in the mood for something a bit more offbeat, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is definitely one to look out for.

Inspired by the collection of prose poetry essays that gives the movie its title, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet turns those poems into distinct segments, each done up in a different, gorgeously unique animation style. All are knit together by a framing device involving an artist (Liam Neeson), his housekeeper (Salma Hayek), and her daughter (voiced by Quvenzhané Wallis).
