Gnomeo and Juliet

17 January
Location informationArc Cinema
Event cost$10

Neighbouring gardens are at war while two young garden gnomes fall in love - all to the music of Elton John. A family favourite.

'Shakespeare with lawn ornaments turns out to be an unexpectedly winning proposition in Gnomeo and Juliet, which restages the Bard’s tragedy as a romantic comedy set in the secret world of garden gnomes. This pint-sized, de-iambicised fairytale emerges as an enjoyable piece of whimsy whose ridiculous premise – think West Side Story with porcelain puppets and British accents – is somehow sustained from wobbly start to happy finish. [The film] disarms with its sparkling vocal turns, adroit balance of humour and emotion, and an engaging visual style that’s all of a piece.' – Variety
