Since I know nothing about what movies are playing these days (and because I usually disagree with the MPAA ratings), I first consulted the Catholic News Service for their review. To my happy surprise, they rated it A-I, general patronage. This was a bit confusing since the film is actually rated PG but I suppose that is for the ugly/grouchy/mean ice monster in the middle. I'm sure we'll have some nightmares tonight but the rest of the movie was worth a bit of suspense.
It turns out that it's also "loosely" (I would agree) based on the story The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, which we just happened to take out of the library last week! (it was on the Seton "classics for 3rd grade" list). How providential :0) We sat in the car (we were early for the movie) and read the book before heading in.
I am blessed :0)
