I was super excited to see Brave
on the list of DVDs we would receive to review from Disney.
I love the whole concept of a female hero
and a young female hero just makes me smile!
We all settled down to watch and from the very beginning we were hooked!
Our girls all love accents
In fact if they hear one they will mimic it for days
So when Brave started the girls spent the first five minutes trying out their Scottish accents
(which happens to be their all time favourite accent!)
Once they had that out of their system they all enjoyed the story.
It’s a story of love.
Love of a Mum and a Daughter.
It’s a story about being true to yourself.
It’s a story about being brave and standing for what you truly want out of life.
As a Mum of girls all these things hit home for me
and I hoped that each of girls took something away from the movie.
Got to love it when a movie brings more than just entertainment and filling in time!
I just loved how the characters were like a real life family.
Princess Merida even throws tantrums like a teenager!
So many great quotes in the movie too.
Some of my favourites…
”If you had a chance to change your fate, would you?”
”are you willing to pay the price your freedom will cost?”
”I don't want to get married, I want to stay single
and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset.”
The girls favourite part…
when Lord Dingwall says ”Feast your eyes” ( I won’t tell you anymore than that, but I will sigh!)
