It is a serious pity that one can only praise the film version of George Orwell's Animal Farm as a valuable beginning or experiment, and hardly more than that.
Comes in an excellent full frame transfer, with an authoritative commentary track by Brian Sibley.
Though too broad at points (especially the ending), this animated update of Orwell's masterpiece still captures the imagination.
