STARRING Amanda Seyfried, Lukas Haas, and Gary Oldman
DIRECTED BY Catherine Hardwicke

Once upon a time, there lived a screenwriter who came up with the brilliant idea of retelling “Little Red Riding Hood” as a sexy tale about a teenage girl and a werewolf. The resulting movie, directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), stars Amanda Seyfried (what big eyes she has!) as Valerie, the stand-in for Little Red, and Shiloh Fernandez and Max Irons as two handsome brooders vying for her attention. One of them also may be the werewolf terrorizing Valerie’s village. There’s only one way to solve this mystery, of course: To Grandmother’s house she goes!
