TOPPING the bill this week at Lowestoft's Hollywood Cinema is the modern day romance Penelope (U).

Christina Ricci is Penelope, the young, aristocratic heiress, and leads an all star cast including Reese Witherspoon, James McAvoy and Richard E. Grant in this warm and funny family comedy.

Penelope is inflicted with a curse from her wealthy socialite family which can only be resolved when she meets 'one who loves her faithfully.'

Lonely and hidden away in the family estate, she meets a string of prospective suitors who are all enamoured by Penelope and her large dowry; until they discover the Curse.

A tabloid reporter, desperate to photograph the Mysterious Penelope, employs Max (McAvoy) to pose as a potential boyfriend so he can get the shot. However, Max finds himself falling for Penelope fast and decides to disappear to avoid exposing his original motive.

Fed up by his betrayal and her family constraints Penelope breaks free, embarking on an inspiring journey, meeting new friends and learning important life lessons along the way.
