Into the Woods : Musical Film – 2014 (Review)

Into the Woods, is a 2014 musical fantasy film. Which was adapted to screen by James Lapine from his musical created with Stephen Sondheim, and included an ensemble cast.

I watched this film today, and enjoyed it, it’s a cross- over of different fairy-tales/fables that we know of e.g. Little Red Riding hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk.

The story focuses on a childless couple a baker and his wife, who long for a child they are played by Emily Blunt and James Corden. Who get an unexpected encounter with a witch played by (Meryl Streep) who’s placed a curse on them, for the baker’s father stealing plants and beans from her garden.

The couple then seek out, to get the items that the witch demands them for in order for the curse to be lifted and for them to bore a child.

However, their actions in the process from the couple to the other central characters e.g. Cinderella and etc have serious consequences that they have to put right (rectify).

There were some really nice songs, I liked very much 🙂

And the rating out of five would be: ~ 4/5

You should definitely watch it though, especially if you like musicals and fairy-tales.

If there is anything I would like to add later to my review for this, I will 🙂

-Thanks for reading,
Lizzy 🙂
