Cannes 2015: 'The Little Prince' Review

Not having grown up in love with The Little Prince, I went into this new film version of the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry book as merely an interested outsider. Fans should know that director Mark Osborne uses the source material as a jumping-off point for a new story, although the original tale is told in pretty lively stop-motion animation. I found the whole film charming, if a little slight. My review is up at Screen International.
