    A little orphan girl is snatched from her bed late at night by a big-hearted vegetarian giant and whisked off to an unwelcoming land of over-sized cannibals in Roald Dahl's much-cherished 1982 book 'The BFG'. For this movie version, aimed squarely...

      Mads Mikkelsen is cast against type to enjoyable effect in this Wes Anderson-ish tale of a broken family with a dark secret. The one-time Bond villain plays mustachioed, socially inept wank-addict Elias, brother of equally awkward college professo...
