A Movie for Father's Day Special
Silly Red Shoes is a story based on a legend of Princess Lily, which live on its title "silly" legend, a twisted modern Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast combined. It radiates a tender feeling, a quest on something you thought you don't have or you can't but turns out you can and you have.
The story centers on familial love rather than teen romance, if it what you expected then it's certainly not. The main actors are good but they were overshadowed by the intensity of the roles of the supporting characters, I wished Chuck and Ashley were given a chance of a pivotal scene on their own. Chuck and Ashley's story is just a background. No hint of teen love and the interactions were too weak if not insignificant to give the actors a chance to show their on-screen partnership, by what's given to them you can loosely judge if they even have chemistry. The ending was also abrupt, the legend was justified but it lacks a closing scene on supposedly Ashley's shoes or feet redemption.
All in all its cinematography is the main savior, it's not a teen love story but story good enough for a Father's Day Special.
