Once Jennie (Meryl Streep) had everything. She had two bowls to eat from, two pillows, and for cold weather, a red wool sweater. She even had a master who loved her. But Jennie didn’t care. In the middle of the night she packed everything she had in a black leather bag with gold buckles and looked out of her favorite window for the last time... Higglety Pigglety Pop! follows Jennie’s surreal, suspenseful and unexpectedly moving journey to gain new experiences and realize her dream of becoming the star of the World Mother Goose Theatre.
Cast: Meryl Streep (Jennie), Spike Jonze (Plant), Alain Goulem (Pig), Al Tuck (Cat), Audrée Juteau (Maid), Jackie Burroughs (Mother Goose), Forest Whitaker (Lion), Sébastien René (Cat), Nathalie Claude (Baby, Mother Goose)
