A fabulous retelling of the fair Snow White’s tale, Mirror Mirror tells the story of the princess Snow and her step-mother the Queen. The Queen Clementianna (played by Julia Roberts) is an evil and frivolous ruler, who taxes her kingdom’s people to the point of starvation to pay for her luxury parties and bizarre beauty treatments. She keeps Snow (Lily Collins) locked away in her room in the castle. When Snow becomes a threat to her place as ruler, the Queen decides to do away with the young princess for good. Things don’t go quite as she planned however, and Snow winds up in the cottage of the thieving band of Dwarves, Butcher, Napoleon, Chuck(les), Grimm (yes, as in Will Grimm), Wolf, Grub, & Half-Pint-- the new and improved Seven Dwarves.
Mirror Mirror is a great remake. Princess Snow is a strong female lead who can be tough and kick butt while still maintaining her beautiful, feminine charm at the same time. The Dwarves are hilarious and colorful characters, and the storyline is different and fresh while still including many things we know and love about the original Snow White. Filled with adventure, love, comedy, and a little magic, Mirror Mirror is sure to be a big hit next movie night!
