The Tale of Despereaux
I got to see this in the theater for free at some kind of kiddie matinee at the Southside Works. I was shocked at how beautiful it was! The whole thing was simply gorgeous, from beginning to end. The story didn't quite live up to that, unfortunately -- it started out novel in many ways, but as time went on, it got more and more formulaic -- it was weird, really, seeing these unusual beginnings turn into standard endings. But honestly, the thing was so beautiful, I didn't really care that much.
