Mirror Mirror
directed by Tarsem Singh

screenplay by Jason Keller
screenplay and story by Melisa Wallack

based on story by Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm

Rating: 5

starring...
Snow White - Lily Collins
Prince Alcott - Armie Hammer

They're not wrinkles. They're just crinkles.
said The Queen - Julie Roberts


Description from imdb:
An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright.

My two-bits:
Delightful take on the story with a tinge of Bollywood at the end.

This Snow White looked so Audrey Hepburn which gives her a cute pixie-like quality. But she sure can hold her own.

The Queen's beauty treatment scene is a fun one and less toxic.

Of course the costumes were the best in its fanciful and whimsical way.

You could rub my tummy! You could throw sticks! I will retrieve them!
said Prince Alcott


Here's a trailer that is a spoiler so watch if you dare...
