This may surprise a lot of people, but I ended up going the reverse direction I normally do: In the beginning, I liked this, but the more I stared at it the more it lost me.

The hair is lovely, sure. I vacillate between thinking the bodice is appropriately sexy/snug, and perhaps sitting too low. But mostly my objection is the skirt. It’s… unconvincing. Heavy. Possibly bored of itself. It’s the Twilight movies of skirts: hoping desperately that you’ll be too distracted by the shiny hair and the pretty and the sparkle to notice that everything else is phoning it in.
