The story was innocently twisted & sweet with a touch of family entertainment. The overall production/ development, ambience and color treatment were spectacular.
Created by hands with pure imagination. I was watching a “Children’s Fairy tale” come to life (…of course,
Man versus self-actualization.
All the elements were presented. The “Yellow Brick Road,” the Wicked Witch, the “Enlightened” version of Courage, Happiness, Inspiration and Friendship. And very importantly; Love.
The acting was raw on both Franco and Kunis. I was watching them on screen; their personality overwhelmed the character. Off-beat, yet subtle.
Weisz and Williams had charisma. Maturity on both their roles and witches instinct. I was watching the character/ actor simultaneously. Amazing~
I love Finley and “ChinaGirl.” They made me smiled, laughed and awed. They felt real with sentimental affection.
The supporting cast were supportive. Great ensemble, though off-beat/ ha.
“As long as You Believe.”
