Princess: A Modern Fairytale


A few years after their graduation from Princeton, Louis Baxter, who retired having sold his business, takes in college-buddy William, who is desperately nearing the end of his trust fund after several failed career attempts. Louis takes William to L.A.’s weirdest society event, the annual endangered animals benefit. This year, to raise more money, the planner auctions a single dinner, which William bids his last capital on. He wins, according to Louis, a shrewd business networking opportunity. But he’s love-spelled by Ithaca, and she believes him to be the seeker, a long-awaited savior for the castle’s most secret reality.

Dove Review

Fairy tales are fantasy stories about castles, princes and princesses, and mythical creatures like unicorns, pixies, or fairies. And we must not forget to include a monster such as a dragon, three-headed beast or ogre. These are things that come to life in a world of imagination. But in this modern-day fairy tale, a princess lives in a castle and once a year holds a ball to raise money to help endangered animals.

This tale has scary monsters, a princess who has to find a successor with the power to take care of the creatures, and a young man who becomes her knight in shining armor by being the one person who can seek out the young girl who is to replace the princess.

Unfortunately, due to content in this film we cannot give it Dove approval.
