with Christina Ricci, James McAvoy, and Reese Witherspoon is a really wonderful movie. It's bright and colorful, creative and meaningful, and romantic. Every character has a story, and each one changes as a result of being a part of the story. I've seen it three times. The music is wonderful, and the artistic costumes, sets, and shots are the perfect house for a whimsical story - just distant enough to shine truth upon me. The end song is by that Icelandic band: Sigur Ros; the song is Hoppipola, "hopping in puddles." Doesn't it just make you want to skip?

To God be all glory.

I watched the trailer and the movie looks interesting.I'll have to look for it at the library.It reminds me of the film Beauty and the Beast as you have to look beyond her physical appearance.
