Movie Review: The BFG
US director Steven Spielberg's first Disney film is breathtaking.
The BFG, a retelling of the classic Roald Dahl children's novel, is a "scrumdiddlyumptious feast" starring Ruby Barnhill as Sophie and Mark Rylance as the Big Friendly Giant.
It's a movie that can make you laugh with its wondrous moments, like when the BFG dines with the Queen at Buckingham Palace and introduces her to "whizzpopping" (farting).
But it also induces wistfulness during the more subtle scenes, like when the BFG shares Sophie's dream with her.
Oscar winner Rylance does a brilliant job at bringing out the warmth and heart of the BFG. You can feel the emotional connection between him and Sophie.
