Every Child needs to see FROZEN. Not only for its amazing collection of Songs, breathtakingly cinematic Animation or its engaging Performances and Storyline – but more so its Message. Far too often we feed the message to young Girls that a Happy Ending involves Prince Charming‘s Kiss or a Wedding. Suffice it to say, we’ve learned our lesson and nowadays are a new breed of Animated Features like Brave and Frozen have surfaced which focus on positive values like the importance of Family Bonds. This isn’t to say that love isn’t something to aspire to, but the relationships we have with our Families are just as important.
Set amidst a deep freeze, Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee take us far away to an icy Kingdom, where we see newly-crowned Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) unintentionally setting-off an eternal Winter with her magical powers. What triggers their quarrelling is younger Sister, Anna (Kristen Bell) seeking Elsa‘s blessings to marry Prince Hans (Santino Fontana), whom she met the same night and falls madly in love with. Elsa, seeing the danger she is capable of causing, goes into hiding, while Anna seeks to find her.
In her journey, Anna encounters the rugged Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his Reindeer Sven and a lovable Snowman brought back to life from her Childhood, Olaf (Josh Gad). She then realizes that her heart also has been frozen by Elsa in the process with time running-out quickly for her. There is one and only possible thing – an act of true love – which could thaw Anna‘s heart, but will she make it in time back to see Prince Hans, who potentially holds the key to her survival?
What makes Frozen a fantastic Film is that its struggles are real and at the heart of it all is a Story of an unbreakable bond between Sisters who have faced deep tragedy and through it all, find themselves fighting every step of the way for one another – their survival and their Sisterhood. Despite all the deep cold, Frozen is every bit heartwarming.
