SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
Rating: M 127’ Fantasy themes and violence
Cast: Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Charlize Theron (Monster)
Director: Rupert Sanders
A dark and beastly story about Snow White's plight in the face of an immensely evil Queen who has murdered Snow White's Father and claimed the kingdom for her own to rule with oppression and sinister magic. Perplexed by an enchantment of vanity, the Queen's power and beauty are diminishing now that Snow White has come of age. Snow White escapes but evil lurks everywhere as she is pursued by many through enchanted forests both desolate and magical. A huntsman despatched to kill her finds himself unable to harm this innocent young woman and instead trains her by noble example to become a warrior. Also in her aid are 7 dwarves (characterised by 7 of England's finest) and a young Duke in love with the Princess...but can they keep her safe to lead an army against the Queen. True love, a pure heart and an iron will help but only the fairest in the Kingdom can overcome evil and despair.
“Stunningly shot .....visual fireworks” Scott Bowles USA Today
“The director sets a heart-pounding pace, pausing only for such interludes as Snow White's encounter with seven dwarfs who could not be more distant from their Disney forebears” Wall Street Journal
“It is an absolute wonder to watch and creates a warrior princess for the ages... - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white.” Betsy Sharkey Los Angeles Times
