From Disney, and based on a book by Tim Burton, Frankenweenie is fresh and fun and sweet – a great family film. Very welcome because we don’t see enough good family films! Of course, Tim Burton has a dark point of view, so there’s kind of a Halloween aura around the whole movie – which is shown all in black and white. But it’s a good dark, a kind of quirky macabre that would come with the Frankenstein tradition anyway. The characters are warm and relatable, the situation very suburban. A few chuckles just for the parents, and enough kid-humor to keep everyone else happy and engaged throughout. Really wonderful story, beautifully put together. Recommended for all.
