This is second longest Oscar nominated animated short and it is based on a true story. A young Englishman heads out to the Canadian west to be a cowboy, a rancher. It is kind of a stretch, but his story is compared to the features of comets. Like a documentary, several townspeople give brief observations about this young man. He writes home with embellishments about his wild life, but he doesn't seem to be adjusting so well from derby hats and manners to stetsons and loneliness. This one has an interesting hand-painted look and a solid narrative.
