I watched Penelope for the second time the other day. It was free on demand. I really like this movie, so much so that I am blogging for the second time today. I think all girls, once in their lifetime, felt ugly and thus can relate to this story in a way. Penelope is about a girl who happens to be cursed with a pig face, which really only includes a pig nose. The curse can only be lifted "if one of her own learns to love her." So her mother sets out to find a blueblood to marry her, and zaniness ensues. Max, played by James McAvoy, comes along and falls in love with Penelope for who she is and not what she looks like. You could tell that he was so conflicted, and it is heartbreaking to watch. So go watch this movie especially if you have Starz on demand (so you have no excuse for missing it). And for you girls, James McAvoy is such a heart throb. Sigh.
