INTO THE WOODS
2014, Walt Disney Studios, 125 min, USA, Dir: Rob Marshall

This adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway musical weaves together some of the most beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Cursed to remain childless, a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) turn to a witch (Oscar nominee Meryl Streep), who agrees to help them if they will gather ingredients for a magic potion - a scavenger hunt that sends them chasing such characters as Cinderella, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood. Boasting gorgeous production and costume design, the film features an all-star cast that includes Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman and Johnny Depp (as the Big Bad Wolf).
