The world is more giant than you can imagine.
The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants—rather than the BFG—she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

I’m beginning to suffer from CGI overload but even my jaded cynicism was won over by this fabulous film. Okay, there were holes in the plot and it was a little overlong but it was sweet, heartwarming and funny, beautifully directed and the CGI stunning. Ruby Barnhill was a believable, down-to-earth and brave Sophie and the voice of Mark Rylance was just perfect for the BFG. Penelope Wilton was super as the Queen and fun that it was set sometime in the 70s (the Queen phoning ‘Ronnie and Nancy’). Good family fun and not just for the kids.
