Why You Simply Can’t Miss Steven Spielberg’s ‘The BFG’!

 

Steven Spielberg is one promising name. The exemplary director and producer whose movies like Bridge Of Spies and Jurassic World received both critical acclaim and positive response from the audience, is known for his political and historical dramas.

Shifting towards a completely different niche, Spielberg is all set to spellbound the audience with his fantastical recreation of Roald Dahl’s famous work, The BFG. Here we give you a few reasons why you should catch the movie this Friday!

A Terrific Child Actor

Ruby Barnhill who the plays the role of the protagonist, Sophie in the movie has done a great job as an artist. Just like Disney’s The Jungle Book actor Neel Sethi, Barnhill had to act in a CGI-heavy movie.

Acting amidst a suited people and green screens, the child actor managed to create some emotional and stern moments. With very few scenes with co-actors (and humans) Barnhill totally sweeps us off our feet with her impressive acting skills.

An established theatre actor, Rylance is among those few actors nominated for the Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards. The actor is giving some serious competition to the legendary actor (and the original BFG) Andy Serkis. It is said that Rylance even approached Serkis for a few tips on Motion Capture techniques but the latter wasn’t available for advice.

Looks like Rylance did not require it in the first place as his spectacular performance is worth watching. You will be mesmerized to see his impeccable dialogue delivery even as a docile giant.

We all have grown up reading and listening to the magical storyteller Roald Dahl. Dahl himself never wanted any of his novels to be adapted into movies, but then we had some amazing takes of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James & The Giant Peach and The Witches.

The BFG becomes even more special a watch as it’s been directed by Steven Spielberg with a budget of 40 million USD!

You’ll be surprised to know that the movie adaptation of the novel is very close to what Dahl has written. Be it the dream catching sequence, the witching hour, the snozzy cumber or meeting the queen; Spielberg doesn’t wreck havoc to the storyteller’s original. If there’s anything that has been added, its the brilliant visual appeal.
