Red Riding Hood
A couple of days ago I was at the cinema in Ashford for the first time. It was a nice experience and of course that was due to the delightful company. Director Catherine Hardwicke has remade the old fairytale Red Riding Hood through the lens of Twilight and except a few pointers from the old tale we are served with an entirely new story. The film has got mixed reviews but I liked it. You could say that Catherine Hardwicke has brought back some of the initial darkness from the version of the Brothers Grimm and I have always been a firm believer that an infusion of darkness into life makes it so much more interesting. In a way the film touches on the subject if darkness and evil are hereditary or if they are influenced by others, and no matter which if you decide to take a taste of it or succumb to it entirely.
The photage is great, the nature and surroundings breathtaking and the medieval clothes are nothing short of inspirational, especially the bright red hood.
