I didn’t see Into the Woods until last month (April, 2016). I had heard people who had seen it in the theater and said it was the longest, most boring movie ever. Needless to say, I was not in a rush to see it.
When I finally did see it, I was so pleasantly surprised! I watched it at the perfect time in my life and the last song in the woods just slayed me. The messages in the movie are simple yet uplifting (especially if you just lost your mom). The cast is also superb and on fleek (did I use that correctly?)
If you’re not into musicals, then yeah, you won’t like it. If you grew up belting out Annie like I did, I would watch it. I’m now listening to the Original Cast Broadway soundtrack while I work on packing and going through things.
P.S. Chris Pine, y’all.
