BABE (1995) 7TWO, 7PM, G, FAM­ILY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Old man Hoggett had a farm (ee-aye-ee-aye-o) and on that farm he had a pig – named Babe. In a world where spe­cial ef­fects wiz­ardry means the an­i­mals talk, this hammy slice of Aus­tralian-made in­ge­nu­ity tells the story of a dis­il­lu­sioned porker (voiced by Chris­tine Ca­vanaugh) and his voy­age of self-dis­cov­ery. James Cromwell and Magda Szuban­ski are bril­liant as the plucky pig’s adopted par­ents – aptly named the Hoggetts – and Hugo Weav­ing shows his di­verse tal­ents as the voice of wise sheep­dog Rex. With seven Os­car nom­i­na­tions, in­clud­ing a win for vis­ual ef­fects, Babe brings home the ba­con. ★★★★★
