Mirror, Mirror (2012)

Director: Tarsem Singh. Cast: Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Mare Winningham, Sean Bean. 106 min. Rated PG. Comedy/Adventure.

The best description I can come up with for this version of the Snow White story, is "cute". After all, Julia Roberts (as the Queen) is utterly unable to play a villain, and the dwarves are here just to (successfully) fill the movie with comedic moments. As expected from one of Hollywood's most visually entertaining directors, Tarsem Singh creates family-friendly sceneries of lavish costumes in panoramic CGI backgrounds that never fail to mesmerize, so much in contrast with the disconcerting violence of his masterpiece, The Cell (2000). Recommended only if you're looking for something light.
