Title:  Once upon a time [videorecording] The complete first season

Starring:  Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Jared Gilmore

Collection:  Movies


Immerse yourself in the magic and mystery of Storybrooke – a sleepy little town where every fairytale character you’ve ever known is frozen in time and trapped between two worlds, victims of an evil curse. On her 28th birthday, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) meets Henry (Jared Gilmore), the son she gave up for adoption 10 years ago. Henry believes Emma is the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), prophesied to break a powerful curse. Unconvinced, Emma returns Henry to Storybrooke, where she encounters the enigmatic Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) and clashes with mayor Regina Mills (Lana Parrilla) – the boy’s adoptive mother – who Henry insists is none other than the Evil Queen!

Whether you gravitate towards fairy tales or are more of a lover of mystery and romance, Once Upon a Time will appeal to you.  Truly original, each episode reimagines the characters we all grew up with in books and movies.  How would Snow White manage in the real world?  Would you ever think that anything could ever disturb a happy ending?  In season one, we get to travel along with Emma as she tries to make sense of the mystery surrounding Storybrooke and where she fits in.  Season 2 is currently airing on ABC.
