Jack and his beanstalk, Cinderella and her slippers, a Baker and his bride … and a witch. With a curse. Wishes may be magically granted, but traditional happily-ever-afters are scarce in this sophisticated fairy-tale mash-up, as characters discover that every wish — and every action taken — can have far-reaching consequences. Runtime: 2h45m, incl. intermission
