Albert Einstein once famously said ‘If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be even more intelligent, read them more fairy tales!’ True as that may be, many aspects of the most well-known fairy tales are outdated - especially for girls!
Sweet Tooth, however, is made by women. This film is about changing the status quo. For starters, the hero in Sweet Tooth is a heroine and she is very unlike the princesses or eligible maidens we usually read about in the Grimm's stories. What’s more, this is the story of a villain, a character who rarely even gets a look in! In the tradition of Disney’s Maleficent, this is a new kind of fairy tale - with a female protagonist we’ve never seen before!
Sweet Tooth is a story about family, an adventure into the unknown, but at heart it’s a story about being brave and taking your fate into your own hands - no matter what.
