One of the most beloved stories of all time is coming to life in the motion picture event for the whole family, Mirror Mirror. A fresh and funny retelling of the Snow White legend, Mirror Mirror features breakout star Lily Collins as Snow White, a princess in exile, and 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 (Armie Hammer) in this magical comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over.
Mirror Mirror is another traipse through the fairy tale of Snow White, this time without animation or songs. Oh, there's a poisoned apple, and a magic mirror, and a houseful of dwarfs living in the woods, not to worry--and of course, there's a wicked queen, embodied by Julia Roberts in witchy mode. The pure-as-driven-you-know-what heroine is played by Lily Collins, and here poor Snow is expelled as always from the magical castle and left in the forest, where she comes upon the dwarfs. Now here's easily the best part of the movie: the seven dwarfs are boisterous highwaymen, stealing from passersby while wearing springy stilts (the spirited crew includes Danny Woodburn, from Seinfeld, and Jordan Prentice, from In Bruges). Also giving it a game try is Armie Hammer (The Social Network), as the prince who wanders into the middle of the tug-of-war between queen and princess. Hammer's charming, and the movie has the superficial visual gloss of director Tarsem Singh's previous efforts (including The Fall). But the breezy tone and tongue-in-cheek approach are ultimately so facile they leave you with nothing much to care about, and the Disney cartoon classic seems dark and tough-minded by comparison. Dopey, you never looked so good. --Robert HortonSee all Product Description
Interesting take on Snow White ... very easy to hate Julia Roberts in this role. STUNNING costumesPublished 6 months ago by Janet Pole
Was pleasantly surprised by this film. The sets are beautiful. Some of the ideas are quite imaginative. Read morePublished on Aug. 6 2013 by Pierre Villeneuve
