Snow White: The Fairest of Them All (2001)

An unexpected triumph for the world of fairytale remakes.

Regan Humphrey

After the birth of his baby and the death of his wife, John (Tom Irwin) accidentally awakens the Granter of Wishes (Clancy Brown), a magical spirit who, in exchange for his freedom, gives John three wishes: milk for his baby, a kingdom for her to grow up in, and a queen to help raise her. As the years pass, his daughter, Snow White (Kristen Kreuk) grows into a kind-hearted and beautiful princess, the envy of her wicked stepmother. Queen Elspeth, after living life as a hag, is consumed by her newfound beauty and allows her vanity to harm everyone around her, including, eventually, herself.
