Sophie and Aggie live in a small town, Sophie reads fairytales constantly and dreams of something more to her life whilst Aggie just wants people to stop saying she’s a witch. When Sophie makes a wish on the wishing tree, they are both whisked away to a very unique school, they both believe but are mistakenly put into the wrong schools.
What an interesting movie, I really enjoyed it. It was so action packed and the story unfolded in so many unexpected ways and it was full of twists I just did not see coming at all. I had no idea what was going to happen in this movie as I haven’t read the book series, but I really enjoyed watching this.
I adored the relationship between the girls and kept thinking they were more than friends they were sisters. They had such a big connection and it felt like so much more than we were told or shown and what we were shown was connection intense. Both go through a huge transition within themselves and both have to decipher who they actually were within the school to fight a greater evil.
The action scenes within this were crazy and there were so many of them. They were so intricately choreographed and were amazing to watch visually. With all the added effects to show the magic side of it, it was amazing.
I was really into this movie it was so clever and unique and a total twist on typical fairytale movies. It was darker, raw and gritty and I loved the deep look into what is evil and what is good. Seeing the two side of the magic school and how they are taught so differently and kept apart. It was so creative, I’m interested at how the second movie that was hinted at the end will consist of, it was such a unique way to end it and now I’m so Intrigued what it will be like.
