James and the Giant Peach
Friday November 11, 2016 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM@ the Main LibraryI
A young boy's discovery of a gigantic peach triggers an eventful journey across the sea in this strikingly designed and surprisingly twisted animated adventure. A live-action framing device establishes the dark yet fanciful mood one might expect from an adaptation of a Roald Dahl story, as young British lad James (Paul Terry) is orphaned by the death of his parents and forced to live with two cruel, repulsive aunts The visit of a mysterious stranger provides a means of escape, however, through a magic bag of 'crocodile tongues' that bring about the appearance of the giant peach.
Rated PG Children 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
