What a lovely Sunday! The sun is shining here in Athens and almost everyone is having a relaxing day. Some people get to spend this beautiful day with their family and today’s film, part of this week’s Sunday Family Movie, is once again dedicated to them.
The story focuses on Giselle (Amy Adams), a beautiful girl living in the animated fantasy world of Andalasia. She is a girl that dreams of having a happily-ever-after ending with the love of her life. It seems as though her prayers are about to be answered when she meets Prince Edward (James Marsden). The two fall in love with each other and plan to get married almost instantly (let’s not forget, this is still a fairytale). But, if Prince Edward marries, that means the end for the reign of Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon). Being as evil as it gets, Queen Narissa is determined to not let that happen and pushes Giselle down a well. At the other side of the well is New York City’s Time Square, where Giselle turns into an all-flesh version of herself.
Out of mere coincidence, Giselle meets Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and his daughter Morgan (Rachel Covey), and ends up in their apartment by Morgan’s insistence. Not satisfied with Giselle being trapped in the real world, Narissa still wants her out the picture and decides to take all necessary action until she succeeds. It seems that only love can truly save Giselle from an impending demise. Does that exist for her? And if so, will it arrive in time to save her?
Another Disney masterpiece, Enchanted is its own way returning to the basics. Despite the modern tendency to use computer-animated imagery in films, Enchanted goes traditional and has all animation done by hand. A welcome change, if you ask me. Amy Adams also received an abundance of positive reviews for her portrayal of Giselle. A film truly suited for the entire family!
