Penelope is a 2006 fantasy/romantic comedy film directed by Mark Palansky which was first released in 2006 as a premiere. It stars Christina Ricci, James McAvoy and Reese Witherspoon. The movie Penelope follows a young woman who learns to be happy with who she is, regardless of her looks or who approves of her. Penelope Wilhern is a young woman from a wealthy family with all the qualities to make an excellent match for any other well-bred man of her status. However, what sets her apart is that she has the nose and ears of a pig. Generations ago, an embittered witch placed a curse on the Wilhern family because their son had impregnated her daughter, one of their servants. The son sought to marry her, but his family talked him out of it and married him off to another. The witch's daughter, overwrought, threw herself off a cliff. The witch cursed the Wilherns so that the next girl born into the clan would have the aspect of a pig. For five generations, only sons were born into the family, until Penelope was born, stricken with the curse. It is said that the curse can only be lifted if one of her own learns to love her, which is interpreted by her parents to mean a man of noble birth.

    No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    It's a great movie to watch with your kids of appropriate ages and have a little discussion afterwards about why we should and should not get married and why we need to love ourselves the way we are... See Full Review

    This show was surprisingly fun and entertaining. My wife recommended it for a movie night and we both enjoyed it. It's a kid friendly movie as well which is always a plus. It's suggestive to parents that they need to accept their kids for who they are and love them no matter what. You can't hold your children back their entire lives. You have to let them grow.
