    • The Making Of The Nutracker: The Untold Story

    Synopsis


    The Nutcracker in 3D
    A dejected nine-year-old girl finds her dreary Christmas in Vienna magically transformed by an enchanted gift in director Andrei Konchalovsky's adaptation of the timeless holiday classic. Just as it begins to look as if Christmas is going to be a total bust, young Mary (Elle Fanning) receives a gorgeously crafted nutcracker from her adoring uncle Albert (Nathan Lane). Later, as night falls on Christmas, the Nutcracker (Charlie Rowe) springs to life, and whisks Mary away on a breathtaking tour of the place where all Christmas gifts come alive. But something is amiss in this captivating world of wonder; the malevolent Rat King (John Turturro) and his wicked mother (Frances de la Tour) are plotting to claim the entire kingdom for themselves, and when they kidnap the Nutcracker, Mary teams up with the other toys to get him back. Saving the kingdom won't be easy, though, because before Mary and her friends can rescue the Nutcracker and restore order, they'll have to discover the Rat King's one true weakness, and summon the courage to strike back when he least expects it. The film features eight new songs by Oscar winner Sir Tim Rice (Aladdin, The Lion King). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      It was terrible! I kept watching it hoping it would get better. I threw it away because it was so bad and didn't want anyone else to waste their money. I had thought of taking it to good will but again I didn't want anyone to waste money!

      No ballet to be find in this movie. Since Nutcracker & ballet usually go together, it would have been nice to see some ballet. The story is different, but still entertaining.

      Although I thought this movie was a bit long, my 5 year old loved it so much she watched it 2x in a row.
