Snow White

3

There’s something you should know – director/scribbler Caroline Thompson was the writer of Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands. Don’t expect a sugary, Disney-esque retelling of the classic fairytale then.

Rather, this features Miranda Richardson as a deliciously vampy queen, and a wince-worthy moment of violence featuring a broken mirror. That said, there are comic touches (one of the dwarves is six-foot-five) and funky effects to leaven the dark brew, while some dodgy dialogue provides further, albeit unintentional, laughs.
