Just came from watching this, and I recommend it. It is not a great movie, but it’s a good one. What’s great is Angelina Jolie, who does a lot with a role that could have easily fallen into camp or otherwise suffered from disrespect. If you’ve seen “Wicked,” you’ll see some parallels here. Several funny bits, and Sam Riley’s really good. I could do without all the adorable animated characters, frankly. Imelda Staunton is largely wasted, which is too bad, but this is a re-telling, and her role is much smaller. There are also several twists in the story, including two at the end, one of which I saw coming and the other I didn’t.
