Steven Spielberg directs the captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s classic, The BFG. Starring Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) as the Big Friendly Giant and introducing Ruby Barnhill as Sophie, the film follows the adventures of a young girl and the kindhearted BFG, who is considered an outcast by the other giants because, unlike them, he refuses to eat children.
Finding friendship and happiness in each other’s company, the pair set out to stop the other giants causing havoc in the human world, however they may require the assistance of the Queen first.
“A typically distinctive, eccentric and seductive star performance from Mark Rylance absolutely makes this movie what it is.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“As the creator of some of the most iconic children’s films ever made, Steven Spielberg more or less dreamt up an entire visual language for childlike wonder.” Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
