Moviegoers at the Sydney Film Festival are hoping the movie The BFG will make its way to Australia soon.

The film is a dark and brooding tale of an orphaned American boy (Kendrick Lamar) who gets involved with a gang of street-gangsters.

But the film has been a hit in the US and will make the jump to Australian cinemas this week.

Moviegoers are hoping that The Bfg will make it to Australia.

“I was like, ‘I can’t believe this movie is here, it’s so emotional, it really brings you to tears, it makes you feel alive, it was a really great story.'”

“I felt like I was in the movie,” he said.

“It made me feel like I really was in it.”

When it came to a conversation with my wife, she was like ‘Oh my God, it is amazing, I just want to get a picture with you’.

“The BFG has had a cult following since its release in the UK in 2013.

The BFF crew, played by Kendrick Lamar and Dwayne Johnson, play a pair of friends that go undercover to help the disadvantaged in their communities.

It’s the first time the film will be shown in Australia.”

We had to make a choice,” Mr Lamar explained.”

Because I think it’s just a better option than not showing it in the States at all.
