Konchalovsky strikes a mix of live action and CGI and Tchaikovsky’s famed compositions to tell the story of nine year-old Mary (Elle Fanning). Mary’s dull Christmas is magically transformed into an exciting adventure when she is given a wooden nutcracker. On Christmas night, the nutcracker comes to life and takes Mary on a wondrous journey into a magical world of fairies, sugarplums and some rather nasty creatures. The Nutcracker is a bizarre and visually stunning musical which features new songs by Oscar winning lyricist Sir Tim Rice (The Lion King).
