Family Film: Three Nuts for Cinderella (Tři oříšky pro Popelku)

December 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$5 for general; $2 for 18 years or under.

An annual holiday tradition in many European countries, and now at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library, Three Nuts for Cinderella is a familiar fairytale with some unique twists. The film stars Libuše Šafránková as the title character, a young woman who is treated terribly by her stepmother and stepsister. But soon a handsome prince comes knocking. Cinderella does not simply fall into the prince’s arms, however. In this version, he must actively pursue the young woman – who is a skilled sharpshooter prone to wearing hunting outfits. Cinderella also has three wish-granting magic hazelnuts at her disposal and an owl for a “fairy godmother.” Will the prince win her over in the end?

This film is in Czech with English subtitles. 83 minutes, 1973.
