At A Glance
Tim Burton adapts Disney’s classic animation Dumbo, to a live action film starring Eva Green, Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton. Burton skilfully casts light and colour on to the dark tale of an elephant calf born with ears enabling him to fly. Dumbo’s talent is exceptional as is Burton’s ability to capture tone that is accessible to all members of the family.
