Film review: Roald Dahl’s The Witches

Oct 31 2020

It’s always risky to adapt a Roald Dahl’s novel to the big screen because we all have individual memories of his stories that we treasure. I have rarely liked any Roald Dahl’s adaptations – with the exception of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp – but Roald Dahl’s The Witches starring Anne Hathaway as the Grand High Witch is well made and captivating. The special effects somehow flow smoothly and you feel transported into Roald Dahl‘s world of these evil creatures that persecute children all around the world.
