The tale of Penelope 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, nobody knows… unless a handsome prince can be made to propose.
In this wonderful 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 (Reese 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.
