The BFG

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda – Roald Dahl’s children’s books are equal parts magical whimsy and sinister menace, and movie adaptations of Dahl's books have sometimes struggled to find the right balance. The latest to make it to the big screen is THE BFG, directed by none other than Steven Spielberg. This week, Tricia Bobeda from WBEZ’s Nerdette podcast joins Josh for a review. Plus, their Top 5 Children’s Book Adaptations.
