“First of all I have to say I am a Tim Burton fan, so I...”

Good Points
Tim Burton at his best! Brilliant film, quite emotional too. Surreal greatness. Very good performances.

General Comments
First of all I have to say I am a Tim Burton fan, so I may be a bit biased but... I love this film, watched it many times and it's still brilliant.

Will (Billy Crudup) is the estranged son of dying Ed Bloom (Albert Finney) who goes home to reconcile with his sick father. The reason for their falling out is that Ed tells great tales and Will basically thinks he has never told him the truth about anything! The film is mainly told in flashback, where Ewan McGregor plays the young Ed Bloom very well, through many great stories and adventures. It's a lovely tale about a father - son relationship married into Tim Burton's weird and wonderful imagination.

Be warned though, if you are feeling soppy (I recently watched it not long after my grandfather's funeral), you may cry at the end!!
