Summary
  • It tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The BFG, while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part
  • "Spielberg offers a gallery of unforgettable images to illuminate a surprisingly straightfoward story about the friendship between the Big Friendly Giant of the title and Sophie, a spunky 10-year-old orphan."--New York Post
  • "You can see a thousand movies and think that you've become immune to dazzling visuals - until you see them done right."--San Francisco Chronicle
  • "For once, underneath all the motion capture folderol, the key performance really does feel like a full, real, vital performance."--Michael Phillips
