The Red Turtle is an Oscar-nominated animation co-written and directed by Dutch-British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit and produced by Toshio Suzuki from Japan.

The film with no dialogue in it tells the story of a man who becomes shipwrecked on a deserted island and meets a giant red turtle.

 The Red Turtle premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Best Animated Feature Film for the 89th Academy Awards.

The Red Turtle received critical acclaim.

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a 94% score based on 107 reviews, with an average of 8.1/10. Metacritic reports a 86 out of 100 rating, based on 30 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".

According to The Chicago Tribune: “The grace, elegance, carefully muted color palette and gradual acknowledgment of life’s milestones lift The Red Turtle far above the average.” 

“Gorgeously animated, this wordless story about a stranded castaway pays tribute to what's most important in life: companionship, love, family, and the stewardship of nature.”
