nuanced rock opera that works across all age groups
20 March 2015 | by onceuponathymeSee all my reviews

was somewhat trepidatious and admit going for the kids, not expecting much. have been seriously invested in the kids' cinematic education for 25+ years and as a result, seen an wide-ranging spectrum for the juvenile set. fantastic visuals, not your run of the mill animation by a long shot. subtle,intelligent humor, simple, streamlined story, and unapologetic, not-so-typical versions of the female/male leads. all of which takes a gracious back seat to the star of this film: the music. for anyone who's managed to incorporate the last several decades worth of music into their everyday lives, all of it will prove to be one long sing-a- long. for those unfamiliar, no worries: the songs are strong enough to stand on their own and the fact that they've been chosen to fit the moment is just a bonus. very pleasantly surprised and will become part of the Permanent Library
