Into the Woods (2015)
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Musical, Disney
I was really excited about this musical adaption and it did not disappoint. The songs were wonderfully sung and surprise, surprise everyone can sing! I was seriously wowed by Chris Pine’s and Meryl Streep’s voices!! The narrative flows great keeping you entertained and laughing (or crying) with the characters on their journey into the woods. The one thing that I first did notice was the set, colours and costume design. Wonderfully created, helped the films overall atmosphere and felt more like the fairytale a modern (and older) audiences are excited about! I loved Anna Kendrick as Cinderella plus the pairing of Emily Blunt and James Cordon was splendid. Unfortunately, they did miss some slightly major points from the original which I did miss and true die-hard fans will be disappointed. But for those who like the work of Stephen Sondheim, musicals and wants to see a fairytale with a darker twist then this is the film for you! Enjoy 🙂 !
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
