I read great stuff other day about that new Christina Ricci movie, Penelope, where the reviewer wrote, "Ricci, playing against type with refreshing results, treats Penelope's voyage of discovery without any winks or nods to the audience. Her Penelope is a sweet-natured, surprisingly well-adjusted woman who yearns for love. Her real problem is not the snout but overprotective parents." The film also stars Peter Dinklage, Richard E. Grant, Catherine O'Hara, James McAvoy and Reese Witherspoon.

And in this interview I'm pleased to read that the co-producer calls Penelope the "anti-Barbie" movie.

There is no official release date, but hopefully before long we'll see this lovely fairy tale-like movie.

NEW EDIT: There are now pictures online!
