Penelope 2008

description written by member Zara:

Penelope Wilhern (Christina Ricci) is cursed, and the only way out of it is to fall in love with someone of suitable stock. But how can she possibly find her soul mate when she's sequestered inside her family's sprawling estate with only her parents (Catherine O'Hara and Richard E. Grant) to keep her company? Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon co-produced this unconventional fairy tale about a girl who bucks convention to make her own happy ending.

Penelope Movie Review by Jarrod (3/4/2008)

'Penelope' is a fairy tale movie, and a charming one at that, about a girl with the nose of a pig. Everything else about her is normal; in fact, the porcine snout does little to mar her inherent physical attractiveness, and it is undoubtedly adorable, so while it may not make her beautiful, it does make her cute.

I'd been eagerly looking...

Penelope Movie Review by Zombie Boy (3/1/2008)

PENELOPE is an absolutely fabulous little movie. A modern day fairy tale, more Aesopian fable than Grimm, however. Think MAY, if MAY was a romantic comedy, where the freaky girl learns to love herself without jamming a screwdriver into anybody's head.

Penelope is a girl cursed by an incident that happened long before she...
