A Beautiful Film!
I saw “Penelope” at the US premiere at CineVegas last week. It has a very sweet message about self-acceptance that we could all use a little more of these days. I loved the hyper- real, brightly colored, Tim Burtonesque look of the film, it helped to accentuate the fairy tale aspect.
I also thought all of the performances, especially Christina Ricci and Katherine O’Hara, were excellent. Reese Witherspoon as a leather wearing, gum chewing, scooter riding messenger girl seemed a bit miscast, but she was actually good and had one of the funnier lines of the film.
While there’s nothing laugh out loud funny, this sweet story makes you smile again and again.
I would recommend this film for audiences of all ages because I don’t think you’re ever too old for it’s message and it doesn’t talk down to an adult audience.
Had good potential but didn’t work out
At first I was not too interested in this movie but the rest of my family sat down to watch it on DVD and I had nothing better to do so I ended up watching it. As the movie went on I really started to like it. It was different and interesting and I loved the cast. But the plot line just simply didn’t make sense. Penelope was under a spell that she thought could only be broken by marrying a “blue blood” yet when she had the chance she decided not to because she had accepted who she was and realized that she wasn’t really in love. But then by accepting the curse the curse was broken and she was happy to have a real nose. She doesn’t fall in love with her true love until after she looks “normal”. What kind of message is that? I think that the movie would have made MUCH more sense if she had the made the choice to be with/marry Johnny even though it meant keeping her pig nose instead of marrying a blue blood and getting rid of it. That would’ve shown she was truly happy with how she looked rather than after she accepts the way she looks *poof* the curse is gone. That’s not the way it works in the real world.
