GIANT (Theatrical Release USA 1956)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Giant—fabulous—shows great writing skill, great acting skill, great presentation and has the human element in place. It’s terrific to see a marriage blend and allowance made for individuality and difference of opinion. It’s wonderful to see the human evolve and develop as the events of life shape lives. Great work for all involved in making this interpretation of life. Whether rich or poor, this movie touches the common elements that we all share while on life’s journey.
