Charlotte's Web

[cert U, 97 mins]

In Charlotte's Web, a very small pig finds that the
most powerful force in the world is the bond of
friendship. Wilbur, a pig and the runt of the litter,
has a youthful manner that makes him seem naïve
to the other animals in his new barn, but to
Charlotte - the spider who lives in the rafters - he
is a welcome friend. Their friendship is shown to be
a lasting one when the other animals reveal that
the pig's days are numbered. It seems that only a
miracle will save Wilbur's life, but a determined
Charlotte has set out to do just that: she spins
words into her web in an effort to convince the
farmer that Wilbur is 'some pig' and worth saving. E
B White's magical, beloved story of loyalty and
sacrifice comes to life in this live-action /CG
animation adaptation.
