SaturDay | Screen 1 | 7:20 pm
The beautiful princess Giselle is banished by an evil queen from her magical, musical animated land and finds herself in the gritty reality of the streets of modern-day Manhattan. Shocked by this strange new environment that doesn't operate on a "happily ever after" basis, Giselle is now adrift in a chaotic world badly in need of enchantment. But when Giselle begins to fall in love with a charmingly flawed divorce lawyer who has come to her aid - even though she is already promised to a perfect fairy tale prince back home - she has to wonder: Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?
Immediately before the screening of Enchanted, the film’s director, Kevin Lima will lead a discussion about poisoned apples and role they play in a post feminist princess culture.

Kevin Lima traces his fascination in animation to his fifth birthday when he received the book, Preston Blair’s Animation as a present. An early involvement in puppetry, inspired by his grandmother, led him to study acting and theater design at Emerson College in Boston before enrolling in the California Institute of the Arts Animation Program. After graduating, he took assignments designing characters and animating for the independently produced feature, “The Brave Little Toaster,” before joining Walt Disney Feature Animation in 1987. For the following six years, Lima worked in one capacity or another on each of Disney’s next five animated features – animating on “Oliver & Company”, designing characters for “The Little Mermaid”, “The Rescuers Down Under”, “Beauty and the Beast” and storyboarded sequences for “Aladdin.” In 1992, he was offered the director’s chair on “A Goofy Movie” which led to the hugely successful and critically acclaimed “Tarzan.”
Currently, Kevin is collaborating with his wife Brenda Chapman, the Academy Award winning director of “The Prince of Egypt” and ‘Brave,” to form a production company that will concentrate on creating family entertainment in all formats - animation, live-action, hybrid and television.
