THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS (PG) A magic res­i­dence in need of a good tock­ing too, US, 99 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - FASHION -

This fam­ily-friendly(ish) af­fair is an en­dear­ingly odd mash-up of a mildly Amer­i­can­ised Harry Pot­ter ad­ven­ture with any old Goosebumps tale you can’t quite re­call. The house men­tioned in the ti­tle is pretty much a School of Witch­craft and War­lock­ery run as a one-man op­er­a­tion by a kooky spell-caster named Jonathan (Jack Black). The only stu­dent on the books is his 10year-old or­phan nephew Lewis (Owen Vac­caro), and the only other teacher on staff is next-door neigh­bour and no-non­sense en­chantress Florence (Cate Blanchett).
