Recently I attended the pre-screening of Into The Woods and I was blown away. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from the film. After watching the trailer below I wasn’t sure if this would be a goofy film or if it would be something that would sit well with me.
I decided to take the risk and I am so glad I did!
Into The Woods takes some of your most popular stories from Jack and Beanstalk to Peter Pan and weaves them together into an unforgettable musical. Into The Woods challenges the characters to ask, “What is it really worth? How bad do I really want this wish?” As you follow their journey you find yourself wondering what you would do in their shoes. What price would you pay?
Another beautiful thing about this movie is the fact that it answers some of the questions you always asked. Why would a boy take beans for a cow? How does a girl lose her nice shoe running down the stairs?
Why did Little Red Riding Hood talk to the wolf at all?
How did Rapunzel avoid hurting her head letting people up that tower?
All of these questions have always bothered me and I love that Into The Woods takes the time to answer each one.
While some of this movie is light and fun there is a dark side to it. As you watch you start to understand the emotions and the motivations behind different choices. Don’t be surprised if you need a tissue at some point. I know this highly emotional moment had me wiping away tears.

I highly recommend this movie. In fact, I want the soundtrack so that the experience doesn’t have to stop with the end credits.
