Movie Info

One of the Brothers Grimm's best-loved fairy tales gets a lavish new presentation in this made-for-TV fantasy. John (Tom Irwin) and Josephine (Vera Farmiga) are a poor but good-hearted peasant couple who are blessed with a child relatively late in life. Sadly, Josephine died while giving birth to her daughter and John struggles to raise the child on his own. While foraging for food during an especially hard winter, John breaks down and cries, and his tears inadvertently thaw out a mystical creature who was frozen in ice, the Green-Eyed One (Clancy Brown). The Green-Eyed One expresses his gratitude by offering John three wishes and John asks that his daughter never know hunger, that he have a kingdom in which to raise her, and a queen at his side to help her grow to adulthood. The Green-Eyed One complies, but it turns out there's a catch: John becomes king, but his queen is Elspeth (Miranda Richardson), a power-hungry shrew with no love for her new stepdaughter. As John's daughter Snow White (Kristin Kruek) grows to become a beautiful young woman, Elspeth's hatred of her grows and grows, and in time Snow finds herself banished from the kingdom by her stepmother. Snow, however, is befriended by a group of magical little men, each of whom is named for a day of the week.

Critic Reviews for Snow White: The Fairest of Them All

All Critics (1)

Thompson's directorial vision definitely takes a cue from Tim Burton, but with a more universal sweetness.

Audience Reviews for Snow White: The Fairest of Them All

An amusing TV movie, one of the more obscure remakes of the classic Snow White. It was fluffy, but still enjoyable.

Faded tiny bit away from the tale but I think Kristin Kreuk was the very best choice as Snow White.
