Irish Film Institute -IFI FAMILY FESTIVAL 2015: Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot

IFI FAMILY FESTIVAL 2015: Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot


UK • 2014 • 88 MINS • COMEDY

Mr. Hoppy is a quiet bachelor who happens to be in love with his neighbour, Mrs. Silver. Sadly, she only has eyes for her pet tortoise, Alfie, so he hatches a plan to get her attention. This latest Roald Dahl adaptation and TV hit was directed by IFI Board member Dearbhla Walsh, who will present the film and answer all your questions about working with tortoises…

After the show, see our Esio Trot exhibits; join the mini book-club discussion about Roald Dahl ’s most phizz-whizzing books, and enter our competition for a chance to win a cake by The Perfectionist Confectionist.

This event is screening as part of IFI Family Festival 2015 (July 16th – 19th).
