Produced by Jim Henson ("The Muppets"), whose famed Creature Shop provided the amazing special effects, Academy Award-winner Angelica Huston ("The Royal Tenenbaums," "The Addams Family") stars in this fanciful and exciting story about a nine-year-old and his grandmother who turn the tables on a witch's plot to turn all the children of Britain into mice. Pia Lindstrom, WNBC-TV, calls it "Marvelous!... A triumph of imagination!" and Entertainment Weekly says "with relish and high comic style, Huston plays the ugliest, wartiest witch imaginable." Co-starring comedy legend Rowan Atkinson ("Four Weddings and a Funneral," the "Mr. Bean" series and movies), and Jason Fisher ("Parenthood").

Critics Consensus: With a deliciously wicked performance from Angelica Huston and imaginative puppetry by Jim Henson's creature shop, Nicolas Roeg's dark and witty movie captures the spirit of Roald Dahl's writing like few other adaptations.
