the princess and the frog

 

If you have the opportunity to see Disney’s new movie, the Princess and the Frog, do it. It’s set in New Orleans in the jazz age, and has a fun soundtrack flavored with jazz, zydeco, and gospel. But these aren’t the main things I loved about this movie. I loved Tiana. She’s not a victim of another woman’s jealousy, like Snow White or Sleeping Beauty. She plays an active role in her own life. I’m sure that being a maid and cook to seven short miners was not Snow White’s goal in life. While there is a lot to be said for making the best of a situation and whistling while you work, she just accepted the cards that fate handed her.
