Mr Hoppy (Dustin Hoffman) lives a quiet retiree's life, tending to his balcony garden, pottering to the shops and back and secretly being passionately, hopelessly in love with his neighbour, Mrs Silver (Judi Dench). From their first meeting in a cramped lift he is utterly captivated by her sparkle and warmth, but he regularly fails to tell her this during their neighbourly chats over the balcony. When he finds she is distraught that her beloved tortoise, Alfie, doesn't appear to be growing, Mr Hoppy spots a chance to make his true love happy, and maybe even get closer to her in the process.

Based on the adored and cherished book from Roald Dahl and featuring an absolutely stellar performance from a fantastic cast, also including James Corden and Richard Cordery, Roald Dahl's Esio Trot is a magical, warm-hearted film for the whole family.
