Art House Theater Day 2017
ADVANCE SCREENING before PBS distribution
A wolf walks into a cafe and starts to tell a story.... Roald Dahl's much loved Revolting Rhymes brilliantly retell classic fairy tales such as Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk with some extremely surprising twists in these two beautiful half hour animations. A treat for both adults and kids (6+)
Revolting Rhymes expertly weaves together these beautifully animated tales while staying true to Dahl's wondrous imagination as a master storyteller. Narrated by the Big Bad Wolf (Dominic West), Red (Rose Leslie) and Snow (Gemma Chan) embrace their dark sides with some help from the three little pigs and gambling dwarves. In the second half of the story, Cindy (Bel Powley) discovers a lovelorn Jack (Isaac Hempstead Wright) next door, but must also deal with her evil stepsisters, Jack's insensitive mother, and a gruesome prince in the background.
With an all-star voice cast that also includes Rob Brydon and David Walliams, Revolting Rhymes is funny, gory, and wholly satisfying
