Spirited: Directed by Sean Anders. With Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds, Octavia Spencer, Patrick Page. A musical version of Charles Dickens’s story of a miserly misanthrope who is taken on a magical journey.
I wasn’t expecting a musical, but that’s what I got and I’m perfectly happy with it. It’s the same story that you’re familiar with, but with some twisted twists that are all both expected and welcomingly new.
