The much anticipated movie Into the Woods comes out on Christmas Day. I know I will be going to this because we are big into going and seeing movies on Christmas Day. This movie and Unbroken are the two movies I will be seeing. Yay!!!
Our book club was so excited about this movie we also did a photo shoot with Classy Cosmetics, Looks for Lovelies and Summer Nicole Photography of our own rendition of the Sandro Botticelli painting "Primavera"

Book/Play Synopsis
(Photo Source)
Into the Woods is the imaginative account of what happens when the lives of new and old fairy-tale characters dramatically and humorously come together. Cinderella, Jack (of bean-stalk fame), Little Red Ridinghood, and the Baker and his Wife set out for the forest on a quest to find "happily ever after." Along the way they meet Rapunzel, a Wicked Witch, a lascivious Wolf, vengeful Giants, a couple of charming Princes, and their own destiny. With wit and wisdom, the authors have given us a parable about the loss of innocence, the joys and sorrows of adulthood, and the price paid for getting the things you really want.
Movie Synopsis
A witch tasks a childless baker and his wife with procuring magical items from classic fairy tales to reverse the curse put on their family tree. Want to know about anything your children might be scared of in this movie check out this Parental Guide from IMDB
