May I ask why you feel it would be "lovely" for the film not to act as a fairy
tale would, as a kind of emotional instruction manual to the art of growing up?
Is there another hegemony you would find preferable, and therefore support
subversive texts as a means to create a new order, and in turn a new set of
fairy tales?  Or do you just like subversion?
