Description

Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the Roald Dahl children’s classic is a delightfully tender story contrasted with the spectre of a rather macabre fate: children being eaten by giants. Thankfully, the fairy-tale proceedings here deliver much more of the former and just a hint of the latter. This lovely tale really is neither an action-adventure movie nor a suspenseful narrative. Instead, it’s a “love” story of sorts between a lonely little girl and the lonely “little” giant who takes her home.

There’s a sense of wonder, awe and vulnerability in their unfolding relationship that recalls the spirit of another beloved Spielberg classic: E.T.: The Extraterrestrial. It’s no coincidence that both scripts were penned by the same screenwriter, Melissa Mathison (who died of cancer in November 2015).
