Tim Burton's Corpse Bride
Source: Catholic News Service
Darkly enchanting animated love story based on a Russian folk tale about a timid groom (voiced by Johnny Depp) whose arranged marriage to the shy daughter (voiced by Emily Watson) of stuffy aristocrats, is derailed the night before they are to wed when, practicing his vows alone in the woods, he finds himself betrothed to a dead girl (voiced by Helena Bonham Carter) he inadvertently reanimates. Though a bit morose for young children, the delightfully macabre fable from co-directors Tim Burton and Mike Johnson imparts a gentle message of selfless love which should warm most hearts -- beating or not. Mature thematic elements, a villainous clerical character and folkloric fantasy content. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
