If you're a fan of dogs, robots, jazz, '80s culture or Earth, Wind & Fire's 'September,' then do we have a film recommendation for you. In fact, Pablo Berger's charming animated paean to friendship, Robot Dreams, has won over so many that it's nestled in the Best Animated Feature category at this year's Oscars alongside such heavyweights as the Spider-Verse team, Pixar and Hayao Miyazaki. The film is finally headed to UK cinemas, and you can see the trailer below:

Based on the graphic novel by Sara Varon, Robot Dreams is the story of Manhattan-dwelling Dog, who is, well, a dog. Feeling the pang of loneliness, he sends away for a kit to build his very own robot pal. The mechanized result sparks a fast friendship, the pair spending time together during a fun New York summer in the 1980s.

But one summer night, Robot's power runs down on a beach and Dog is forced to abandon him. Will the two best mates meet again? You'll get the answer to that when Robot Dreams arrives on UK screens on 22 March.
