30 Christmas Films: Day 30

Title: The Nutcracker (1993)

Synopsis: Strange things can happen when you fall asleep beneath the Christmas tree. Or so Clara learns when she and her beloved nutcracker doll turned prince face some rat foes and journey together to the Land of Sweets.

Why You Should Watch: I can remember being incredibly excited when this particular film hit theaters. This version of The Nutcracker is a great \”gateway\” into ballet for a young person in your life. George Balanchine\’s choreography paired with Hollywood is a pretty good performance. Did I mention the cast is mostly New York City Ballet dancers with Macaulay Culkin and Kevin Kline thrown in for some additional star power? The Nutcracker (either on video or live) is an annual Christmas tradition worth making with your family!
