Pixie com­rades keep it cut­sey pie

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM REVIEWS - TARA BRADY

from Robert McKee’s stop­watch.

As ever, it would be nice if the fairies weren’t quite so wasp-waisted, but any film that prizes sis­terly love so highly is to be com­mended. In Tink’s world, girls who like girls are trust­wor­thy and girls who chase boys are id­iots.

Never mind the pe­tal frocks – we’re stick­ing with a Marx­ist­fem­i­nist read­ing all the way to the rev­o­lu­tion­ary de­noue­ment.

Un­hap­pily for lit­tle boys who have al­ready watched Rise of the Guardians twice, this is the only new an­i­ma­tion for the Christ­mas sea­son. Be brave, chaps.
