Penelope, A Fairy Tale Like No Other

We love Penelope, the newly released DVD with Christina Ricci, (our favorite Wednesday Addams). It is the enchanting story of a young aristocrat, the victim of a witch's curse, who must find true love with "one of her kind" in order to break the spell. James McAvoy, still making us sigh after Atonement, and Peter Dinklage, the charismatic star of The Station Agent, appear with Catherine O'Hara, the brilliant comedic actress. Reese Witherspoon, who produced the film, makes a cameo appearance. Penelope is a quirky, modern take on a fairy tale that reminds us to honor our fabulous selves when we catch our reflection in the glass. Each of us is perfect just the way we are. If only we had realized that earlier...
