GRE­TEL AND HANSEL

Indwe - - Dinner & A Movie -

A long time ago, in a cursed land, a young girl (Sophia Lil­lis) and her lit­tle brother (Sammy Leakey) are forced from their fam­ily home to search for food and work. De­spite as­sis­tance from a noble hunts­man (Charles Ba­balola), they be­come disori­en­tated and lost in a deep, dark for­est. When they stum­ble across a mag­i­cal cot­tage, in­hab­ited by a seem­ingly kind old woman (Alice Krige), Gre­tel and Hansel be­lieve they have found sanc­tu­ary. But the woman’s lim­it­less feasts in a time of famine, and her home’s strange mur­mur­ings of lost chil­dren and mag­i­cal in­car­na­tions, sug­gest all may not be what it seems. Can Gre­tel pro­tect her younger brother, or will she suc­cumb to the temp­ta­tions that rise within her? Some­thing wicked this way comes, in this dark reimag­in­ing of a clas­sic fairy­tale.
