As befits a children's story, the plot is simple and direct. A small girl, Sophie, is kidnapped by a friendly giant when she catches him at his work delivering dreams. She discovers many things about giants and their world including the fact that there are also some very bad giants who want to eat people.
Eventually, Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant enlist the help of the Queen of England and they set out to catch the bad giants.
Children as young as four years old will enjoy this film. They may be little afraid but it's not so bad as to give them nightmares. The film will also appeal to older children too as the story, while simple in it's barest form, contains enough detail and wit to maintain interest.
Also, children will find a lot to talk about in the film and, if parents buy the original novel, they have something to read to, or with their child.
Sometimes, children watch a film over and over until it is worn out. In this case, be warned, they may watch this one so much that they wear out the player!
something to watch again and again
