Looks can be deceiving. So can fairy tales.

WHY WE PICKED IT: Before ‘Wild’ and ‘Gone Girl,’ Reese Witherspoon dipped her toe into producing with this fresh, quirky take on the Ugly Duckling narrative.

A young heiress is cursed, and to lift that curse, she must find a lover who knows that beauty is more than skin deep. Christina Ricci leads an all-star cast, including James McAvoy, Peter Dinklage, and Reese Witherspoon, in this refreshingly unconventional fairy tale.

DIRECTOR: Mark Palansky

CAST: Christina Ricci, Catherine O'Hara, Peter Dinklage, James McAvoy, Reese Witherspoon
