The trailer is gorgeous, and the story line even moreso:
A little magic helps her understand
that she can only save herself
by saving the world in which she lives.
The TFF description:
Little Sister is a gorgeous film based on one of the earliest versions of the beloved story Cinderella. In this enchanting version drawn from ancient scripts – which filmmaker Richard Bowen discovered in a Beijing museum – we are transported to a time and place where boys are valued over girls.
Inspired by the two Chinese daughters he and his wife adopted, Bowen has skillfully created a family-friendly film that celebrates an important moral – that girls are as good as boys.Watch the trailer, and if you are lucky enough to view it this Saturday, please report back here promptly!
