About the Movie

Throughout his life Edward Bloom (Ewan McGregor) has always been a man of big appetites, enormous passions and tall tales. In his later years, portrayed by five-time Best Actor Oscar nominee Albert Finney (Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Erin Brockovich, 2000), he remains a huge mystery to his son, William (Billy Crudup). Now, to get to know the real man, Will begins piecing together a true picture of his father from flashbacks of his amazing adventures in this marvel of a movie.

My Absolute Favorite Movie

I seriously cannot say enough good things about this film. It is very artistic in nature, and those who don't like movies in the abstract may wish to stay away. Many people have called this a movie that has no idea what it wants to be, but i think that is the beauty of it. It is not pretentious, it comes right out and says it doesn't make sense, and I enjoyed everything and anything it tried to accomplish. Bravo Tim Burton and co, Bravo!


this is probably one of the best acted,most original, most magical movies or our generation


This movie is amazing, its funny and cute and sooo lovable. Im definatly going to buy it! Its something that the whole family could watch. You should definatly buy this movie.
