Bedknobs and Broomsticks review
27th July 2012
Bedknobs and Broomsticks - A resourceful and splendid account of a book by Mary Norton. The blend of characters and scenery changes keep this a thrilling and adventure centred film with great potential for live theatre production, if Cameron Mackintosh could work with the Sherman brothers on this one! There is little doubt that this is Disney at his best and a bit of a reprise in best special effects academy award after Mary Poppins. The tone is occasionally melancholy but not artistically negative as its mood makes the whole picture work.
