Beagle Street: “Insurance for Life” - 60s

Astute character design and a cheeky sense of humour define this quirky stop-motion outing for Beagle Street Life Insurance. Director Noah Harris and frequent Wes Anderson collaborator Andy Gent are responsible for the film's distinctive visual flair, as residents of the brand's eponymous street are beset by relatable yet wacky challenges associated with entering a new life stage.

While not every new house purchase will be accompanied by an orchestra of garden vermin, it's a lighthearted reminder that it's better to be safe than sorry when preparing for every eventuality. This ode to life's messy and chaotic moments is sure to resonate with viewers of all stripes - even those without sleep deprivation to blame for their regrettable quarantine purchases.
