My 10 year old daughter was enthralled by Into the Woods and didn’t say a peep till the end of the movie. It’s over 2 hours long so that is quite a feat for her! Into the Woods is a musical and you have to follow along by listening to the songs they characters are singing. I’m not that crazy about musicals so it wasn’t really my cup of tea, but my daughter really enjoyed it.
I enjoyed seeing all my favourite fairy tale characters like Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, Cinderella and more. Meryl Streep played the part of the witch and was my favourite character. She did a great job personifying the evilness of her character.
Johnny Depp played the part of the Wolf and I wish he was featured more in the movie! His part is small, but memorable.
I loved the gorgeous fairytale setting. It’s what I would expect my favourite fairytale scenes to look like.
If you are a fan of musicals, give Into the Woods a shot. I’m sure Bridget will ask to watch it again.
