Gnomeo and Juliet (U)

The wacky world of gnomes that has been preoccupying Sir Elton John for the last 10 years or so; he has spent this time as executive producer developing this children’s animation, updating the story of Romeo and Juliet to a modern suburban Britain of neat gardens with naff accessories.

Here, two clans of gnomes are at war over the garden fence, and two star-crossed gnomes experience the pangs of forbidden love. The tale comes complete with classic hits from Sir Elton’s back catalogue, and it’s a cheerful, likable children’s picture with a big heart.
