One of the most beloved stories of all time is coming to life in the motion picture event, Mirror Mirror. A fresh and funny retelling of the Snow White legend, Mirror Mirror features breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, a princess in exile, and Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts as the evil Queen who ruthlessly rules her captured kingdom. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince in this magical adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the Prince, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.
Refreshing! Campy! Funny on purpose! What a movie experience this is! This imaginative film will have little girls dreaming of being a princess, little boys pretending to beat the ghoulish guards of the evil queen, and adults snickering at the movie’s funny lines and camp. For example, when one character is given a “puppy love” potion instead of simply a “love potion” the results are very humorous.
In this refreshing take on a legendary story, an evil queen (Julia Roberts) seizes control of a kingdom and plots to take the life of the heir, an exiled princess (Lily Collins) named Snow White who relies on the help of seven “dwarf” rebels to win back the kingdom which is rightfully hers. She happens to care about the people as well, something which is far from the mind of the queen, who suggests the poor eat bread and pretend it is meat. The phrase “Let them eat cake” echoes in one’s ears. When the queen sets her eyes on a wealthy prince, the same young man Snow White fancies, the queen says, “It’s time for me to get rich, I mean hitched.”
The film contains a lot of slapstick physical comedy and duels and fights, and the image of a beast might be a bit frightening for younger viewers. So, with this caveat and suggestion parents consult our content chart and description before taking young children to the movie. We are pleased to award this rousing modern fairy tale our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. This is a movie which has something for everyone. So, if you will pardon the expression, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…white. “Mirror Mirror” is a fun experience not to be missed.
