A luminous, beautiful work, and not to be missed on the big screen.
The BFG is an epic tale of an unlikely friendship between a lonely orphan and a “big friendly giant,” who is brought to life through an extraordinary motion-capture performance by Mark Rylance. Together the pair explore Giant Country, collecting dreams and trying to avoid the other giants, who, unlike the vegetarian BFG, eat children for sustenance. Spielberg’s film didn’t find much of an audience, perhaps because it’s too leisurely paced for today’s mass audiences. (2016, 117 min, digital)
Part of Roald Dahl at 100
Author Roald Dahl was best known for his darkly comic novels for children. Dahl did not trust adults or any form of sentimentality, and never condescended to his young readers. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth, YBCA presents six delightfully malevolent adaptations of his most famous books, plus the weirdest-ever James Bond film, for which he wrote the screenplay.
