My husband and I decided to go to a movie today, and once again, we didn’t have a lot of choices. We decided to see Mirror, Mirror with Julia Roberts. I’d seen previews and read some reviews and had mixed feelings about seeing this movie, but it was the best offering of the available choices. I didn’t realize until later that while my husband had heard of the movie, he wasn’t sure what it was about until it started. We both thought it was a decent movie, not great, but good. I give it a B minus.
Mirror, Mirror is a retelling of the tale of Snow White, the version you were never told as a child. Julia Roberts plays the Queen, who put a spell on Snow White’s father, the King, in order to get him to marry her. After the King is killed in the forest, the Queen exiles Snow White, played by Lily Collins, not allowing her to leave the castle. The Queen has also devastated the village, continually taxing the people so that she can use the money to throw lavish parties.
