From a young age Elle and Dakota have graced the movie screens those sweet lil blonde cuties, featured in countless photo-shoots and made all sorts of appearances whilst maintaining their studies and being snapped doing everyday things, which leads me to believe (an hope) how down to earth these two beauties must be even with their rising fame.
Recently I've watched Elle in Maleficent, not only did I enjoy her soft natured presence in it (also blown away by Angelina + cast), I felt as a Disney fan, I wasn't disappointed to say the least; I have come across mixed reviews, but fortunately it’s been leaning more towards all kinds of positive words.
As a kid I loved anything to do with princesses', even now I won't deny the fact I would be just as excited as I would have then, as I would now at the sight of the actresses at the Disney parks all dressed up, I couldn't get enough of watching the princess movies in VHS, rewinding my videos over an over again, convincing myself one day that would be me... hehe we could dream right?
Maleficent took me into a magical world of good vs evil, but for once focusing on how someone considered “bad” has that tender-caring side, which is looked past in most cases. I would admit Sleeping beauty wasn't the go to movie I would play though I still gave it attention because it still captivated me even though I felt it was missing something, and I think bringing out this tale to a real-life action packed film, which I throughlly enjoyed the spin taken that I’m already eager to go see it again was what it took to redeem itself.
As for today, now don't ask me how or where as I forgot haha, I’m losing my mind lately, but I came across Dakota’s new trailer for "Very good girl" whose featured alongside my fav twins’ sister, Elizabeth olsen *(plus other well casted talent). This film is a coming of age, friendships tested, love, family, that whole mix of drama… I was drawn in by the ad to now be sadly enough waiting for it to be released in cinemas.
Well done Fanning sisters, I adore you both.
