Tonight’s movie is Into the Woods and will be played in Forest Hill Park.
I’ve not seen this movie nor am I good judge of kid-appropriate any more but concerned parents can check out this review.
Its presentation of characters like Cinderella, Prince Charming, and more as very flawed people may be confusing or upsetting for younger kids; there’s lots to think about here, but it’s pretty emotionally complicated stuff. A lascivious wolf preys on a young girl, children lose and are separated from their parents, sympathetic characters die, handsome princes aren’t all they appear to be, and there’s no promise of happy ending for anyone. Meryl Streep’s wicked witch might terrify younger kids, and giants wreak havoc upon the land and terrorize its residents — but for the most part, the scares are mild.
