Director Statement

Yes, John Lenon was right. All you need is love, but I'd add fantasy as well. I am constantly trying to remind people that the world is more magical than our tired eyes show us. There is nothing more realistic than a fantasy movie. Little Red Riding Hood was always about coming of age. But now I am telling you my version.
