Editorial Reviews

An enchanting new spin on the classic tale


Adapted from E.T.A. Hoffman's classic novel, The Secret of the Nutcracker features the talents of Brian Cox (The Escapist, The Water Horse) as Drosselmeyer and introduces Janelle Jorde as Clara in a charming union of fantasy and reality that captures the true essence of Christmas.

This delightful holiday tale follows 12-year-old Clara's mystical journey on Christmas Eve to find her father, who is captive in a World War II Prisoner of War camp. Worried and longing to see her father, she receives unexpected help from the mysterious Drosselmeyer, who befriends Clara and brings her the gift of magic and hope when she needs it most.

The Secret of the Nutcracker features the soaring music of Tchaikovsky performed by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Four exquisite dance spectacles by the world-renowned Alberta Ballet are woven throughout to create Clara's wondrous dream world.

Quite a different take on The Nutcracker. Great movie with scenes of ballet also. Not just for Christmas time. Loved the owl !

I've seen numerous Nutcracker performances over the years. Obviously theater performances are different but I thought this script was well done. My kids 2 and 5 enjoyed it as well.

Hard to follow rather boring to us. It could have been good, but just didn't get better.

Meh, it was okay. Very strange but visually stunning. They rushed the end. The crows and other birds were beautiful.

Nice to be able to find an entertaining family movie on prime that we hadn't seen before. Our 6 year old loved it.
