Details of a new fantasy movie called Penelope. Set in the modern day, the tale of Penelope (Christina Ricci) did not start well, her beauty transformed by an evil spell. To the world outside the news was big, a poor little girl, with the nose of a pig. How to break the curse? Well a handsome prince has to be made to propose.
In this modern-day fairy-tale, Christina Ricci stars as Penelope, a beautiful young girl with an extraordinary curse. Hidden away from the world in her family’s majestic home, Penelope dreams of breaking free of the enchantment - but true love is hard to find when young men run away screaming.
That is, until she meets Max (James McAvoy), a down-on-his luck musician and Annie (Reece Witherspoon), a free-spirited rock-chick, who encourage her to come out of hiding and find her true self. Penelope soon discovers that sometimes what you're looking for can be right under your nose...
Coming Feb 2008.
