James and the Giant Peach

Inventive stop-motion animation from Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) enlivens this charming tale by Roald Dahl. In it, an orphaned boy ditches his nasty aunts to sail to New York in a giant, hollow peach with a group of talking bugs. OK, so the story is pretty surreal, but the animation is imaginative, the voice cast topnotch and the songs quite nice. 79 minutes PG.
