The BFG, directed by Steven Spielberg, is now on Digital HD, Blu-ray™ and Disney Movies Anywhere.
For decades the brilliant and mildly subversive children’s writer Roald Dahl has opened children’s eyes to the joy of reading. Mildly subversive because, unlike many children’s authors, he isn’t afraid to explore the dark side of his extraordinarily imaginative worlds, and he believed children had the courage to do so as well. My daughter is a case in point. Her favorite book is now The BFG, and she’s discovered a passion for literature because of it.
Spielberg’s adaptation of the book led her to it. The movie is sweet, a little scary at times, but great for your family movie night with children six and older.
Best of luck, dear reader!
