Born with the snout of a pig, young Penelope Wilhern (Christina Ricci) spends life a virtual prisoner in her home. Believing that the only way to break the curse is to marry one of her own kind, she meets a number of suitors, but all reject her. Two devious men, one with a grudge against the family, hire a man (James McAvoy) to pose as a suitor, but complications arise when he begins to fall in love with Penelope, and she makes a bid for freedom.

A modern romantic fairy tale, Penelope is charming and romantic — perfect for a few days after Valentine’s Day — with a lovely cast led by Christina Ricci, along with Catherine O’Hara, James McAvoy, and Reese Witherspoon.

About the series

So Fetch!
So Fetch!

We’re making “fetch” happen with “So Fetch!” — a new series of rom-coms, chick-flicks, and fabulous turn-of-the-millennia cinema.

The words were iconic as soon as they left Gretchen Wieners’ mouth in 2004’s “Mean Girls.” That’s so fetchBoth the quote and the movie defined a fresh type of genre — fetch films for a new audience. This series is for that crowd. Maybe “fetch” never happened for Gretchenbut this category of comedies will forever be great and cool (grool, if you will), and we’re here for it.
