Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A charming adaptation of a classic kids book, the BFG is brought to life by some stunning visual effects, what should be an award nominated performance by Mark Rylance and some sturdy workman like direction from Spielberg. However its the script by ET writer Melissa Mathison that expertly adapts the Dahl book, glossing over the darker elements and highlighting the fun, that makes this film sing. So overall a very good adaptation of classic film.
Best Bit: Rylance as the BFG
