Roald Dahl's Esio Trot, DVD

Roald Dahl's Esio Trot DVD

Directed by Dearbhla Walsh



Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench star in this adaptation of Roald Dahl's book directed by Dearbhla Walsh and co-written by Richard Curtis.

The film follows Mr Hoppy (Hoffman) as he tricks his neighbour, and love interest, Mrs Silver (Dench) into believing her frustratingly slow-growing pet tortoise Alfie has been cured by the powers of a made-up magic chant.

However, unbeknown to Mrs Silver, Mr Hoppy has been replacing Alfie with increasingly larger tortoises as time passes.

Will Mrs Silver ever see through her neighbour's ruse?
