#1 / Sunday 29 June, 2014 / 18:01 GMTSometimes the film description can be deceiving and leave one feeling let down. Every word above describes the film aptly and beautifully. It was a sensitive and poetic insight into the life of a young girl/woman who has, because she had too much responsibility as she has grown up, slipped into the world of fairy stories as respite from reality. The darkness of the grunge world and boyfriend mirror her inner light without being "cheesy". And the way the film and girl resolve the situation is credible and offers "middle-aged" parents like me hope in their display of both insight and common sense. Thank you for such a magical film.
