Rating: 5

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...


After much merry making and laughter, the dwarves show us the road towards Castle Bryggja.

Make way, thataway...
