Our Score
Director Caroline Thompson successfully revived Anna Sewell's sense of social justice in her 1994 adaptation of Black Beauty. Here she attempts to put the Grimm back into a story that has become surprisingly unfamiliar since Disney's fanciful cartoon became the standard version. Consequently, Snow White is imperilled by a wicked stepmother who has gained control of her grieving father through the machinations of a green-eyed genie. Like Sigourney Weaver before her, Miranda Richardson revels in the beauty-fixated queen's venomous villainy, but Kristin Kreuk's inanimate performance makes her a dull heroine. More successful, however, is beanpole Vincent Schiavelli's casting as one of the seven dwarfs.


A widower struggles to put food on the table for himself and his daughter. One day while out hunting, he saves the life of a strange creature, which grants him three wishes in return - but the reward comes at a high price. Luckily, seven brightly garbed chums are on hand to help. Modern-day reworking of the classic fairy tale, starring Kristin Kreuk, Miranda Richardson, Tom Irwin, Vera Farmiga and Tyron Leitso.
