Still shot from the movie: Charlotte’s Web.

Charlotte’s Web

A perfectly ordinary farming community suddenly becomes perfectly extraordinary, thanks to a not quite ordinary friendship between a tiny pig called Wilbur (voice of Dominic Scott Kay) and a wise spider named Charlotte (voice of Julia Roberts). This live-action adaptation of E.B. White's classic children's novel (featuring some amazing computer generated effects) is equally extraordinary. Get the movie review and more. »
