Frozen (2013)

When the newly crowned Queen Elsa accidentally uses her power to turn things into ice to curse her home in infinite winter, her sister, Anna, teams up with a mountain man, his playful reindeer, and a snowman to change the weather condition. (IMDb)

The real strength in this film is its subversive take on the typical princess story, as it is ultimately about a sister relationship and not a romantic one: e.g. the “act of true love” that saves one of the sisters’ life is not a kiss from a loving prince (as was supposed), but her own sacrificial act to save her sibling. Unfortunately, this refreshing plot goes by almost too quickly to really sink in, but it remains an enjoyable snowy journey punctuated by fun characters and great songs.

7.5/10
