The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Review

Tonight my daughters and I went to see a screening of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. We were really excited to see this film from seeing the trailers. The costumes were beautiful. The actors were well chosen for their roles and did a great job. I believe it will be a good movie for families with young children to see over the holiday season. There are a few parts that might be rather scary for very young children. With that said, we were a bit disappointed in the overall storyline. The movie just wasn't as sensational as we were expecting from a Disney film. The film felt slow in parts and left out details in others. Given that we left feeling not totally satisfied, I am wondering how others will view the film and if we are totally off base.

SYNOPSIS

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
