Mirror, Mirror, the new adaptation of Snow White directed by Tarsem Singh (Immortals), stars Julia Roberts as the evil Queen, Lily Collins as Snow White and Armie Hammer as the charming Prince Alcott.
The film is slight but fun, which just might be enough to lure tween girls away from The Hunger Games.
Here are three good reasons why you should go see it:
Julia Roberts is royally evil
Sure, Roberts has flirted with her naughty side before (see: Duplicity, Closer or Larry Crowne – on second thought, don t see Larry Crowne) – but now she’s letting her witch flag fly. As Mirror Mirror’s vain Queen, she’s manipulative, spoiled and cruel, locking Snow White in her room, starving her subjects and employing black magic when she doesn’t get her way. The role is a tad campy and Roberts’s faux-British accent shaky, but the actress wins points for boldly taking on a part that casts her as beautiful but aging.
