Into the Woods

by Toby Woollaston

Into the Woods is a mish-mash of uninspiring fairytale characters that meander their way through a seemingly endless list of quests. Biting off way too much, this film sinks under its own weight and rapidly becomes a disjointed mess – even Meryl Streep can’t save it. The musical medley between the two princes (Chris Pine and Billy Magnussen), aptly titled “agony”, is ironically the film’s only redeeming scene, however, it’s title sums up my experience of this film.
