Science Fiction and Fantasy
Most of us have parts of our appearance that we're not totally happy with - but we probably don't have the same issue as Penelope. She's a smart and sensitive young woman who, as the victim of a family curse, has grown up having the snout of a pig instead of an ordinary nose. After having spent much of her young life hidden away, as a young woman she finds herself pursued by a mean-spirited photographer who plans to make a fortune from selling her picture to the highest bidder. But when his plan results in a case of mistaken identity and - at first - a broken heart for Penelope, it sets her on the road to solving her problems and facing the world. Star Christina Ricci is brilliant in this original and touching movie, which also features plenty of British talent in its cast.
