Keira Knightley and Mackenzie Foy in the very strange The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

What a strange film; a Christmas movie released during Halloween with a deliciously twisted sugary performance from Keira Knightley, an underutilized Helen Mirren, and the titular character is not even second lead.

This was a very, very strange film that was quite difficult to enjoy.

If anything, I enjoyed Keira Knightley’s performance because I have not seen her do a performance so quirky and off her usual type. It’s nice to see her range, which Hollywood won’t give her many opportunities to show.
