Each month a staff member chooses their favourite family film: this month Box Office assistant Ali Carpenter-Hughes chooses The Iron Giant.
“This affectionate adaptation of Ted Hughes’ short story will appeal to children and adults alike. With visual slapstick humour and loveable characters finding unusual friendships in a fearful society, the film shares a positive message that it’s ok to be different and questions what it is to have ‘humanity.’ Themes of loneliness and loss might get you teary-eyed but ultimately The Iron Giant is a joyous celebration of friendship and hope.”
