Esio Trot Review

Richard Curtis, Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench team up to adapt Roald Dahl's tale of geriatric love and shelled reptiles. It’s light and extremely sugary, even by Curtis’ standards: your enjoyment may depend on whether you can get behind a hero named Mr. Hoppy. But extraneous James Corden narration aside, it’s skilfully done and ultimately beguiling.
