About Mirror Mirror
A riotously colourful family film that retells the Snow White story with dazzling costumes, fantastical sets and goofy humour. Snow (Lily Collins) is a plucky young princess exiled by an evil queen (Julia Roberts). She meets a group of rough-and-ready, wisecracking dwarves, and they train her to be a warrior so that she can fight the queen and reclaim her kingdom. Always on the lookout to increase her fortune, the queen decides to marry someone rich. She picks Prince Andrew Alcott (Armie Hammer) because he is handsome and easy to manipulate. However, her plans are thwarted when he meets Snow in the forest. At first he is dismayed that she is the leader of the resistance against the queen and Snow finds him incompetent, but eventually they admit their feelings for each other. The queen has lots of magical tricks up her sleeve to keep the two apart.
