Into the Woods Review: One Magical Musical
The story of Into The Woods deals with a Baker and his wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt). In order to break a curse made by a witch (Meryl Streep), the two must find items from the likes of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) and Red Riding Hood ( Lilla Crawdford). The couple's journey intertwines with fairytale characters as the group discovers in the woods that it is best to be careful what you wish for.
Into the Woods is one the most impressive musicals I have seen in quite sometime. Everything about this movie, whether it was the cast or the film's look, was memorable and rich with with entertainment. Though the film could have been stronger if it played closer to the original musical. However because of its presentation, Into The Woods captured the magic of Broadway, and that is an impressive feat for any movie in this genre.
