Once upon a time princess Rapunzel (Moore) is abducted from a castle by the scheming Mother Gothel (Murphy), who covets the girl’s magical hair.

The golden locks shimmer with the secret of eternal youth but must never be cut - or else the hair will lose its power and turn brown.

Gothel confines the girl to a tower and convinces the child that she must never leave the high-rise fortress for fear that she will fall victim to the evils of man.

Then as Rapunzel celebrates her 18th birthday, swaggering outlaw Flynn Rider (Levi) happens upon the tower in the secluded clearing and climbs into Rapunzel’s bedroom.

At first, the young woman is wary of the intruder but he eventually convinces the fair maiden to disobey Gothel and travel to the castle to witness the annual display of fire lanterns.

Rating: 9/10
