It says at the bottom that it's sponsored by that clinic, along with another clinic. So I don't think it's specifically theirs. But that looks worth checking out.

If you were planning on going to the Boxtrolls like I was, be forewarned that one of the villains was created expressly to make transphobic jokes. They fulfill the whole 'trap' stereotype that you've seen in many films before.

And you can find a picture of Madame Frou Frou a couple of pictures down on this article (Which I didn't read, so I don't know if it's any good.):

I'm really disappointed. This was the only film I planned to go see this year. I love claymation, and it looked really fun.

That's really disappointing. I thought it looked fun, too. That's a shitty way to find out the villain is a bigoted trope.

For sure. I'm glad I've been too busy to go line up and see it.

What a disappointment! I had such high hopes, too.
