Movie Info

In this live-action adaptation of Tchaikovsky's fantastical ballet, young Marie (Jessica Lynne Cohen) awakens to find that toys and mice have grown much larger, and a villainous rodent ruler begins to torment her. Coming to Marie's aid, however, is the Nutcracker Prince (Macaulay Culkin) who protects her from the evil mouse amidst lively dance sequences. Also inhabiting this dreamy realm is the Sugarplum Fairy (Darci Kistler) and her dashing cavalier (Damian Woetzel).

    I saw this live when I was little. I wonder if Macaulay Culkin was the Nutcracker Prince then? It is a really good ballet and brings back good memories.

    We used to see this in elementary school in music class and, like the stage ballet, has boring parts and parts that are just amazing.
