Two girls learn about life and acceptance in this Parent Trap–style romp with a time-travel twist.

Lookalikes Marguerite and Margot have a lot in common, including absent fathers, family strife and the dawning challenges of teenagehood. But there’s one big difference: a yawning historical gap of 78 years. In 1942, Marguerite’s father has disappeared in the chaos of WWII; in 2020, Margot’s dad has absconded to live with his girlfriend, with a stepfather now taking his place. But a magic chest lets the two switch eras, and each embarks on a quest to track down the other’s missing père.

Directed by Pierre Coré, whose first feature Sahara was nominated for Best Animated Film at the 2018 César Awards, and featuring a sparkling performance from up-and-comer Lila Gueneau Lefas in the dual lead roles, The Fantastic Journey of Margot & Marguerite is an uplifting, laugh-out-loud ode to the power of family bonds – those we inherit, and those we make for ourselves.

“Bring[s] a new twist to the classic time-traveling movies of yesterday. The result is an incredibly fun adventure.” – Ashley & Company
