A big round of applause to Disney for coming up with these awesome heroines. Gone are the shy girls, waiting for a prince to complete them. Now, with movies like Brave, Tangled and Frozen, we have some strong women worthy of the title princess.
Elsa is born with power, but not allowed to use it because it could hurt someone. That whole aspect bothered me. She should have been taught to control it, maybe even use it to help her kingdom. Her younger sister, Anna, is not allowed to see her anymore. The two grow up locked away in a large castle, until without giving away spoilers, a tragedy occurs. I'll let you read the synopsis of this movie elsewhere, or better yet, watch it.
Let me just tell you my favorite part. Though Anna wants a handsome prince to sweep her off her feet, since she's based her life on paintings that hang on the castle walls, she manages to be flexible when things don't quite go the way she thought they would. She moves right in to plan B. Go Anna! That's how I like my heroines to behave.
There were many things a little off about this movie, but I did enjoy Anna, I liked the cute friend-than-romance aspect, and I also liked the scene when Elsa decided the hell with everyone, she was going to let that power out. And I'm soooo happy we've moved past the princess dependent on a prince to rescue her. The women now take matters into their own hands. Go girl power!
