The BFG has had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, and early reviews are now being published online. I’ve just added three to the movie info page:
- “The BFG review: Spielberg and Rylance’s delicate touch proves hugely charming” from The Guardian
- “The BFG: Cannes Review” from The Hollywood Reporter
- “Cannes 2016: Spielberg creates a landscape of astonishments in The BFG“ from The Telegraph
Interestingly, it appears that one of the reporters questioned Steven Spielberg about Dahl’s alleged anti-Semitism. Spielberg claimed that he’d never heard of this when he took on the project, and that he focused simply on the story.
