THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS (PG) Drift­ing into other worlds while scratch­ing its bal­let, US, 99 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Fashion -

A live-ac­tion re-imag­i­na­tion of the Nutcracker fa­ble from Dis­ney. The set­ting is Vic­to­rian-era Lon­don, where a bright young girl named Clara (Macken­zie Foy) is look­ing for a key to un­lock an or­nate gift left by her late mother. Clara’s search takes her through a Nar­nia-like por­tal to not one, but four al­ter­nate di­men­sions. While the movie is beau­ti­ful to look at, its en­ergy lev­els in sus­tain­ing viewer in­ter­est in Clara’s ad­ven­tures can fluc­tu­ate markedly. A nice enough fam­ily film, though not as mem­o­rable as it might have been
