Mirror Mirror Review
MIRROR MIRROR is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar® winner Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Prince Alcott, Sean Bean (“The Game of Thrones”, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) as the King and Nathan Lane (The Lion King, The Birdcage) as the Queen's hapless and bungling servant, Brighton.  An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. 

On Sunday, we were up bright and early and ready to head off to London, all excited about going to see Mirror Mirror.

We arrived at the Empire Leicester Square and were greeted by some of the Dwarves and the Prince. 

We stopped off first to have photos taken, there were loads of things to do.  Decisions, decisions, the girls decided to make tiaras first, then queued to have balloons made for them.

They would have liked to ice cookies too but we ran out of time. We went and found our seats; the girls were amazed at the size of the cinema, it was huge!

The girls were very excited that we were to be the first UK audience to see the film.

Well I thought I knew the story of Snow White, I was wrong!  I only knew the sketchy outline, now I know all the facts!  Snow White is played by the very beautiful Lily Collins; Snow White’s father remarries after the death of Snow’s mother, when the King (Sean Bean) disappears in the woods, his wife Queen Clementianna played by Julia Roberts, takes over as Queen.  The once very happy Kingdom becomes unhappy as the Queen collects all their money to spend on her beauty treatments. Snow on her 18th Birthday decides to take action. When the Queen discovers her plan Snow is banished to the forest. In the forest she meets first the Prince (Armie Hammer), then the Seven Dwarves. With the help of her new friends, she wins back what is rightfully hers and like all good fairy tales everyone lives happily ever after, well nearly everyone!

This really is a story about remembering to make your right choices and not wrong choices, lots of lessons to be learned!

The audience was a very mixed age group; some of the smaller cinema goers did become quite restless before the end though. 

I had with me three 13 year olds who declared the film to be

“Awesome!”

We all really enjoyed the film.

After the film we walked down to the new M&Ms store where the girls enjoyed posing with their Mirror Mirror goodie bags.
