Fairy, Fairy, Quite Contrary

FairyTale is charming, sometimes inspiring--and almost entirely fraudulent

Those are just the ones that leap to mind; there are others--all of them neutralized by Sturridge's insistence on the literal truth of the cousins' lies. An ambiguous position would have allowed for the film to tackle one or all of them; even a steadfastly unmagical one would have left room for most.

With luck, Photographing Fairies will tackle some of these issues. In the meanwhile, we have Sturridge's version -- which provokes pleasure but little thought.

FairyTale: A True Story
Directed by Charles Sturridge.
