THE BFG

BFG TopDirector Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Melissa Mathison have brought imagination to life from the musings of Roald Dahl, creating a wondrous world in which giants roam the streets of London past.

“Sophie’s” (Ruby Barnhill) life is forever changed when she’s plucked out of her bed at the orphanage one night by “BFG” aka the “Big Friendly Giant” (masterfully voiced by Mark Rylance). The unlikely pair becomes fast friends, BFG introducing Sophie to the world of Giant Country and dream catching, and Sophie’s bravery reminding the Friendly Giant to stand up for himself in a world where he’s the little guy.
