FILMCLUB Film of The Week:
Snow White and the Huntsman (2012, 12)
Director: Rupert Sanders
Cast: Kristen Stewart; Charlize Theron; Chris Hemsworth; Sam Claflin; Ian McShane; Bob Hoskins; Ray Winstone; Nick Frost
This big-budget extravaganza, with its eye-catching special effects, gives the age-old fairy tale the Hollywood blockbuster treatment. It’s certainly darker and more violent than the beloved Disney animation, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and, with its epic, Lord of the Rings-style battle sequences and terrifying collection of monsters and villains, it’s recommended for older audiences.
Charlize Theron is chilling as Ravenna, the wicked queen, who jealously demands Snow White be killed on account of her beauty. However, the huntsman ordered to murder her is not only unable to go through with it, but becomes her protector.
The second of two films based around Snow White this year (the first being Mirror Mirror) this is definitely the scarier one with lots of action and great stunts to enjoy – why not remind yourself of the story with the brilliant Disney classic before settling down in the cinema with this version and compare the two films and their differences.
Like this? Then also try these great films: The Princess Bride (1987, PG); Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937, U); MirrorMask (2005, PG); Stardust (2007, PG); Alice in Wonderland (1951, U)
