I really found this movie to be a fantastic fairytale! I love fairytale movies, and this one was quite creative and the acting was also very good! I have been quite disappointed with many of the recent fairy tale like movies that have come out, when even the story line could be good, the acting has been horrible. I hate it when, even in a fairy tale, the acting seems unrealistic. The whole point of a fairytale is take the viewer away into a magical world and make them believe it is real! This movie does that quite well! This movie is a must see for anyone who enjoys escaping for a bit into a believable yet make believe world! :) Highly recommended! :)
