Charlotte's Web

Family, Fantasy 1h 37m 2006

AroView: Live-action adaptation of the children’s classic, here with child star Dakota Fanning as animal whisperer Fern, and a barnyard of celebrity voices giving life to her web of friends.

Julia Roberts gives a curious mix of the creepy and the comforting to the titular arachnid whilst Fanning comes alive with the animals in a seamless blend of CGI and reality reminiscent of BABE. Padding the human scenes with a quasi-boyfriend for Fanning, it is not without its flaws, but includes all the elements that a family film needs to succeed: humor, drama and pathos, in an emotionally satisfying update.
