“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?”
If you answered Snow White, then you must be familiar with this classic fairy tale. However, you have never seen Snow White done like this! Relativity Media is bringing Mirror Mirror to the big screen on March 30. This modern twist of the classic tale is a great movie for the family and will have everyone pulling for the princess, rooting on the dwarves, hissing at the evil queen… and ooing and awing at the breathtaking costumes and amazing sets.
I was able to see the movie at a screening earlier this month. I can honestly say it is a movie I enjoyed watching. I laughed out loud again and again. I was engrossed in the storyline, and loved the adaptations they made. Two of the things that stood out to me the most though in Mirror Mirror were the INCREDIBLE costumes, and surreal sets.
The dark magical forest, just down the road from the castle, was an amazing set. It was so easy to get lost in the action because I wasn’t caught up noticing the blue screen technology inserted into the movie. Don’t get me wrong, I love how much technology has added to movies, but it was so refreshing to watch Mirror Mirror and the real, constructed, sets.
The home of the elves was another set that truly did create another world. The multiple levels, rooms in the background, details in the props… it really felt like as the viewer you were in the home of the 7 dwarves!
Now onto the breathtaking costumes… I don’t even know if I can explain them in any other way. They were simply breathtaking. Whether it was something as the gown the evil Queen was wearing while playing her life-size version of chess, or the coat that Snow wears when she goes outside the castle walls. If you watched the Academy Awards this year, you make have noticed the name Eiko Ishioka included in the In Memoriam. Her designing greatness is what brought these amazing costumes to light.
One of my favorite costumes is the orange and blue gown for Snow White. I love how it plays on the Snow White dress that was made famous by Disney, but takes the dress to a whole new level. GORGEOUS!
Mirror Mirror will be coming to theatres on March 30. It’s a great movie that will be sure to take your breath away.
