No spoilers, I promise! OK: who doesn’t like feel-good Disney movies?
What about a snowy, Christmassy movie? What about a Disney film reminiscent of the classics, where the characters constantly burst into song, love conquers all, and everybody lives happily ever after?
Frozen is loosely – very loosely – based on Hans Christien Anderson’s The Snow Queen. It’s the story of Elsa, a little girl with a gift – she can conjure up snow. When she is little, she uses her gift having fun with her little sister Anna – but when Anna accidentally gets hurt, her parents panic. Anna’s memory of her sister’s powers are wiped, and Elsa is kept away from other people and made to hide what becomes her terrible curse.
But what happens on Elsa’s coronation day, when the castle is opened?
Frozen is really, really good – genuinely touching, very funny in places – the addition of the talking snowman and the reindeer was a touch of genius – and the sort of heart warming, good family film that causes you to leave the cinema feeling just a little bit cheerier.
Go and see it – if you’ve got little kids, they’ll love it, otherwise, drag a friend, a boyfriend (mine grudgingly admitted he’d quite liked it) your Mum…anyone, I genuinely believe most people might roll their eyes to begin with, but they’ll be converted by the end!
