Mini Review - Into The Woods

Into The Woods (out Jan 8) is a big screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim 1980s musical. It mashes together several famous fairy tales and humorously shows that not everyone deserves to live "happily ever after". The casting is great, the voices are clear, and the plot is easy to follow. It's just a shame the film doesn't push its darker tones more strongly in the final act. Grade: B+.
