When Leo discovers he has the power to leave his body and float about New York as a ghost, the 11-year-old superhero befriends Alex, a cop who was injured while trying to capture The Face, a mysterious new villain. When the gangster threatens to unleash a virus that will plunge the city into chaos, Leo and Alex have 24 hours to spot the evil plot before New York is brought to its knees!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Phantom Boy may fall at the other end of the spectrum from super-polished DreamWorks and Pixar product, but the directors' impressionistic touch won't seem so alien to fans of Cartoon Network and Nicktoons series.
Fresh: A modest, engaging film that reminds viewers of the intimate pleasures of drawn animation in an era of CG blockbusters.
Fresh: Taking their old-school animated style across the Atlantic, directors Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli offer up a heartwarming New York story with Phantom Boy, their second feature collaboration following the 2010 Oscar-nominated A Cat in Paris.
Fresh: There's an appealing quaintness to the storytelling that calls to mind the Tintin books of the artist and writer Herge, especially that series's old-world charm.
