But with her birth comes a curse and the end of her mother's life. Left alone with an infant daughter, John braves a brutal winter in search of food for his starving angel. Salvation comes unexpectedly when the father's tears melt the frozen tomb of a bewitched creature, the Green-Eyed One. In thanks, the insinuating beast grants John three wishes: nourishment for Snow White, a kingdom in which to raise his family and a queen by his side. But John's cause for celebration is short-lived.

I disagree with some of the comments that Kristin Kreuk both looked like we would expect Snow White to look and that she would be the fairest in real life too.
First of all, Kristin Kreuk's makeup in the movie was too pink. Her cheeks and her lips were pink, when Snow White's skin is supposed to be like snow and her lips blood red.
And secondly, while she is no doubt beautiful, I'm sure other actresses could have played her just as well if not better. I don't see the "flawlessness" in her beauty that some people see. I realize she is very popular nowadays, and that's nice for her as an actor but not everyone agrees.
About the movie itself: the retelling was ok. I have always had a fascination with the evil Queen, and in this movie they make her out to be pathetic and one dimensional and not the beautiful, complex, powerful diva she's supposed to be. I personally prefer Snow White: Tale of Terror, with Sigourney Weaver as the mother queen.
