Charlotte's Web

E.B. White's famous book gets the big screen treatment and an all-star cast with Dakota Fanning as the farmer's daughter who becomes attached to the runt of a pig litter, previously doomed to a very short life. She names him Wilbur, but as he gets older she realises that Wilbur's safety won't last long - once he's big enough, he's headed for the butcher's block. When the farmyard animals hear of this, they set about a plan to make Wilbur so special, the humans won't want to kill him. Charlotte the spider is the ringleader, voiced by Julia Roberts, and she is joined by the well-known voices of Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Redford, Andre Benjamin and more. Lovely stuff.
