Frozen Review by Adverbially Yours

Frozen-movie-poster

Warning: There are spoilers below.  In this case, I don’t think I can give an honest review without them.

Frozen is the most recent movie to come from Walt Disney Animation Studios.  Sisters Anna and Elsa spent the majority of their lives apart from each other in the same palace.  Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) doesn’t understand why all of a sudden, her sister, Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel), cannot be around her anymore.  Their parents decide that it’s best to keep them apart for fear that Elsa may lose control of her magical powers and injure Anna.  The two sisters barely speak until Elsa’s coronation.  At the event, Elsa can no longer restrain herself, and as her emotions escalate, so does her strength.  Within minutes, the entire kingdom of Arendelle is winterized, and Elsa retreats into the woods.  Anna chases after her sister, trying to restore their relationship and knowing that without Elsa’s help, summer will never return to their kingdom.
