at the weekend i went to watch the little mermaid.
it was playing at the backyard cinema close to elephant and castle.
i can’t remember the last time i properly sat down to watch the little mermaid but wow was it an emotional rollercoaster!
my synopsis of the plot:
ariel falls in love with a prince after she saves him from a shipwreck, but she’s a mermaid.
she makes a deal with ursula, a witch essentially, to get legs in exchange for her voice. she accepts.
even though she’s super happy that she has legs, she’s sad at the fact she can’t speak to the prince.
ursula stabs her in the back (not literally) and poses as a human girl with a beautiful voice that the prince falls in love with.
they were about to get married but ariel is able to intervene.
ursula is pissed and turns into a giant.
the prince saves the day and ariel’s dad gives her legs so she can live on land.
plus lots of singing in between.
it was a really good film and i thoroughly enjoyed it.
i give it a five out of five popcorns.
