    ★★★★

    An unexpected film from Kenneth Branagh for being smaller and much more contained but just as engaging as any of his big blockbusters.

    There is a full 360 shot at the beginning of this film that is breathtaking - revealing the conflict that surrounds young 'Buddy' and the suddenness of it's flare up.

    Like the poster this is beautiful to look at film but wasn't much else going on. At no point did we explore the new fairy people that was introduced in a meaningful way that made sense nor did they give any of the men anything sensible to do which fine, revenge for all the times women had to stand around being useless but they didn't exactly give Aurora anything to do either. Fine if you have kids who need entertaining over the weekend.
