Roeg’s sinister sensibility finds its ideal match in the nightmarish landscape of Roald Dahl’s source material in this not-just-for-kids children’s movie. Travelling with his grandmother to a seaside hotel, nine-year-old Luke stumbles upon a witch’s convention plotting to turn England’s children into mice. A gleefully menacing Anjelica Huston stars as the head sorceress, while Rowan Atkinson plays the hotel’s grumpy manager.

A film by Nicolas Roeg
