When a wooden puppet is brought to life he must find his way in a world of strange creatures, with dangers at every turn. Acclaimed director Matteo Garrone turns his hand to the classic story of Pinocchio and creates the best version since Disney’s take in 1940. This dark treat for older children and adults alike is an exquisite piece of work, but contains a few tough moments that may not be suitable for the under 8s.
