Steven Spielberg may not have made a blockbuster or box office money spinner but it’s still a sweet gentle tale which is made with great care and detail.
The Big Friendly Giant is a reminder of our childhoods, a simpler time where stories were all we had. Roald Dahl, a celebrated writer, contributed greatly to literature and story telling. This movie is just that, a story where you can immerse yourself and be captivated by its imagination which is brought alive by visual brilliance.
Actors Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylane and Penelope Wilton deserve mention for doing their roles so sincerely and in the spirit of a fantasy tale.
