Brave (on DVD)

[j DVD Brave]

Princess Merida doesn't like acting like a princess; she prefers riding her horse through the Scottish woods doing archery. Her mother's attempts to get her to put down the bow and arrows aren't always successful. When Merida comes of age, a contest is held for her potential suitors. At her wits end with her mother and being forced into a marriage, she asks a witch to help her. The spell turns her mother into a bear, which was not what she expected or wanted. The two have to learn to respect and understand each other to get out of the predicament. It's a bit different in that respect to other Disney princess movies, in that it's about a mother and daughter, not a princess and a prince. It is full of songs, great animation and heart, so anyone who likes Disney movies, I think will like this one too. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ see Kristen's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
