The first Truly Moving Picture Award winner of 2008, Penelope is the modern-day fairy tale of a young woman in the curious position of being cursed with a pig’s snout. Christina Ricci plays Penelope, whose parents have kept her behind lock and key while they look for a well-to-do suitor who will help break the spell. Enter the charming James McAvoy as Max, the slightly-sketchy heir to a fortune might or might not be what he says he is.

We’ve also created a brief discussion guide that plays on the movie’s themes of self-image and finding one’s own path in life. Grab the pdf from Heartland, then sit down with your family, your book club or just the friends you invited over for movie night and start discussing!
If you caught this one in the theaters, leave a comment and we’ll pick someone to receive the DVD courtesy of Heartland and Summit Entertainment. Heck, even if you haven’t seen it, leave a comment about how much you’re dying to and you could win it too!
