內容簡介


兩名動畫師的友誼與事業夥伴關係,十年後會產生什麼樣的變化?
伴隨成功而來的懷疑與毀滅、過往的陰影與創傷,威脅著她們之間的微妙平衡……


Mel和Sharon都主修視覺藝術,入學不久後便成為好友。兩人都來自問題重重的家庭,但個性迥異:自信直率的Mel總是全場注目的焦點,而內向的Sharon雖有野心卻自我懷疑;然而,她們同樣熱愛動畫,一見如故的兩人展開友誼與事業,成天在簡陋的工作室畫動畫、分享歡笑與淚水。

她們是合作無間的雙人組,經過十年間不斷製作短篇動畫,以Mel童年為主軸的首部動畫長片,終於獲得各界肯定與關注!為了替下一部動畫取才,兩人回到Sharon的家鄉,她被迫正視兒時的創傷與記憶。當過往的怨恨逐漸浮出檯面,Mel與Sharon都被迫面對心魔、人生的悲劇、過去的陰影,還有她們之間的複雜關係……Sharon也不禁思索,也許擁抱放蕩不羈的生活方式的Mel,才是兩人之中真正有才華的藝術家,而她只不過是負責確保一切都走在正軌的跟班,她們的友誼因此產生裂痕,也威脅到作為事業夥伴的微妙平衡……

探索兩名女性的友誼與事業夥伴關係,以令人心碎的情節,搭配不失幽默的筆觸,探索那些我們在成長過程中必須拋下、來自過往的包袱。

From age eighteen on, I had a partner, a kindred spirit. I had a friend. Someone bound and determined to keep me from the worst in myself.

At a private East Coast college, two young women meet in art class. Sharon, ambitious but lacking confidence, arrives from rural Kentucky. Mel, brash and wildly gifted, brings her own brand of hellfire from the backwaters of Florida. Both outsiders, Sharon and Mel become fervent friends, bonding over their love of classic cartoons, their dysfunctional working-class families, and – above all – their craft: drawing. Mel, to understand her tumultuous past, and Sharon, to lose herself altogether.

A decade later, Sharon and Mel are an award-winning animation duo, living and working in Brooklyn, and poised on the edge of even greater success after the release of their first full-length feature. But with this success comes self-doubt, and cracks in their relationship start to form. When unexpected tragedy strikes, long-buried resentments rise to the surface, hastening a reckoning no one sees coming.

Funny and heartbreaking by turn, The Animators is a dazzling story of female friendship, the cost of a creative life, and the secrets that can undo us.
