A fractured fairy tale..


Have you seen Penelope yet?? SUCH a cute little movie..




And not just cause it's Christina Ricci, and James McAvoy...and not even all the rest of the actors, where even the "bad" guys turn out to be not bad, or at least not as bad...



No, what grabbed me the most, were the colors...



..and the sets..


..and the clothes..



Penelope is a fairy tale, about a girl cursed to be born with the face of a pig..



As a result, she is shut away from the world, kept in her own private little world, in her room..



Which leads to her developing a strong and creative streak, completely reflected in her surroundings..




And her wardrobe is to die for, too...I think I would wear every single outfit she wore...even the fluffy wedding gown, if I were actually, you know, getting married. :p

So, if you are in the mood for a cute, quirky, funny, adorable little movie, with some major eye candy, I'd say Penelope would be a good choice. I, personally, need to own it now. :D

I love this movie! (I've developed quite a crush on James McAvoy) You're right the colors were amazing, the wardrobe was dreamy.

I saw this movie just a few weeks ago and seriously loved it! I'm with you on her wardrobe and how I would have killed for her room when I was young. Who am I trying to kid - I'd still kill for it!

I haven't heard of this movie - perhaps because we edit out all the commercials! I'm going to check it out - it sounds wonderful.

Oh I'm so glad you mentioned that movie. I saw it on the plane and was mesmerized. Don't the color look like someone out of Nadia (la porte rouge) pictures?

Corine-That is EXACTLY who I was thinking of...so much that I have been thinking about giving her a heads up, cause they look so much up her alley, lol!

Thanks for the recommendation. We haven't seen a movie or DVD in ages. Maybe I should go over to Blockbuster this week :)

I've been trying to convince my family that we need to watch this, but they've resisted. Now that I've seen the pictures, I am overruling them!

You know...I've been meaning to see this movie forever! I need to start writing things down. Seriously. My memory is pathetic!

Thanks for the photos and reminder. I'm totally renting this.

This is one of those "wanted to see it but then forgot all about it" flicks - thanks for the reminder!
