Family-Faith Review: Gnomeo & Juliet
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Gnomeo & Juliet — William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy about star-crossed lovers morphs into a clever animated comedy as rival families of garden gnomes face off in a battle for backyard supremacy. It’s love at first ceramic clink for Juliet Capulet (voice of Emily Blunt) and Gnomeo Montague (voice of James McAvoy), but differences in clan allegiance threaten to drive them apart. Until, that is, a wise pink flamingo (voice of Jim Cummings) assures them that love conquers all including, in this case, the Bard’s original ending. Director Kelly Asbury’s slightly warped but ultimately winning film offers good, clean, wholesome fun for the entire family. A-I – general patronage. (G) 2011
