An imaginative teenage girl, living in a mystical and dangerous community built on a deserted drive-in movie lot along the Texas/Oklahoma border, struggles to realize her potential, and escape the world she was born into.
William Robert Carey
Two sisters, Grace and Violet, bound together by more than blood, live a reclusive life in a large mansion, detached from society and reality too. They have a plan. It's hardly conventional, but the outcome nine months later is all that counts. Whatever they do they must not fall in love with the man that they choose to ensnare. Set in contemporary New England.Written by
Yes I am the type that reads the back of the DVD case but I never expected what I didn't get. I loved the images of the twisted fairy tale but, the movie seemed like someone had yanked a page out of a Gothic teenagers dreams. I did not understand what the title had to do with the story. It seems that the writer of the film scammed some imagery from Francesca Leah Bloch. This movie seemed to have jumped off the twisted pages of this woman's retelling of fairy tales in modern day terms. All the princesses are schizophrenic and the princes are handsome, screwed up and bipolar. Good luck if you can make sense out of this hodgepodge of victorian furniture, hippy rags and twisted sisters. Toward the end I did begin to understand the older sister and the description of obsession on the back of the box.
