1. Not for kids. 2. Does not make sense to adults. 3. If you value your time enough, and still watch the movie - you will probably create an IMDb account and try and save as many people as possible from committing the same mistake (like me).
All of this happens because of a curious mixture of a musical, in a fairy tale, that is targeted at adults (and has child inappropriate themes) about abstract notions communicated in a really poor manner.
Ps: If you enjoy philosophical good/evil questions in a random context and have seen the eponymous play and like it - you may like the movie (but really confirm you are that person)
