Synopsis: A young Abigail lives in a city whose borders were closed many years ago due to an epidemic of a mysterious disease. Abby’s father was one of the sick, and they took him when she was six years old. Going against the authorities to find her father, Abby learns that her city is full of magic. She will discover in herself extraordinary magical abilities.
Review: Absolutely wonderful Abigail. Very poetic, with beautiful and unique story-line, magic and main ideas. Posters should be definitely done differently, as they don’t even a bit reflect the movie.
Poster looks like cheap reproduction of The Nutcracker of Disney, and it gives the impression the the movie would be the same, but very dull. But in fact the movie is wonderful. Promotion should be done differently – that would bring many people to cinema.
The movie Abigail deserves much more attention then it is given. Of course this movie destined to Harry Potter / Fantastic Beasts and where to find them / Hellboy by Guillermo del Toro lovers. It is fantastic story about magic powers hidden within every person, filled with beautiful messages addressed to each and every one from child to adult.
