Helena Bonham-Carter is coming home…
The 55-year-old part-Spanish English actress will star in Netflix’s The House, the streamer’s upcoming stop motion dark comedy animation anthology from Nexus Studios.
Directed by leading stop motion animation directors Emma de Swaef, Marc Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr and 46-year-old half-Mexican English actress/director Paloma Baeza, The House centers on a home and the three surreal tales of the individuals who made it their own.
“The characters in The House, albeit in different ways, are all trying to make sense of the world and their place within it. It’s about their flawed attempt to conform to an idea of who they think they are or who they think they ought to be,” said Charlotte Bavasso, producer. “And whether they manage to break free or not. We couldn’t have dreamt of a better cast: they all embraced the heart of those existentialist comedies and the uniquely caustic sense of humour of our visionary filmmakers and writer in spectacular ways.”
