Brave

Disney and Pixar play to their individual strengths with this clever fable that turns traditional Disney princess movies on their ears. Merida (Kelly Macdonald from "Boardwalk Empire") is a spunky Scottish princess who wants nothing to do with frou-frou dresses and dopey princes. She'd rather romp around the woods with her bow and arrow. So, instead of choosing a groom, she runs off and begs a favor from a batty old witch. Naturally, this supernatural twist of fate leads to many complications and more than a few lessons learned. Although this original fairy tale doesn't completely break the Disney mold, it certainly crafts a fresh new one. 100 minutes PG.
