It seems that Fiona is frustrated that the princesses instinctively dropped to their typical position based on their fairytales, when clearly that is the most hopeless thing they could do for themselves. Then the queen stands up for Fiona and head-butts the brick wall, busting it down, freeing the trapped princesses. Fiona responds, “Okay girls, from here on out, we’re gonna take care of business ourselves” (Price 95). This then leads to the princesses combating the guards outside the Castle Gardens. The princesses are portrayed in a way that have not been seen before.

Thirteen books of the trials of Blair and Serena, it seemed as if Cecily could not write about anything else. But this book proves you all wrong. Cecily von Ziegesar took a normal story of a good and her horse and twisted it into dark horror story, but not really. See Merritt was a typical trouble girl: she had her issues and instead of facing them she ran away and douse them in a bottle of alcohol. Her horrible friend (Beatrice) was no help to her cause, and the hansom boy gave her the on and off feelings (Carvin).
However, it is the impulsivity of Lord Capulet and his daughter Juliet throughout the play that creates troubling situations for these young adults, resulting in the tragedy of young people being forced to make adult decisions.

For one, when she and Romeo discuss their love from her balcony, she says to him “I gave thee mine [vow] before thou didst request it/And yet I would were I to give again”(2.2.135), and in doing so promises herself to Romeo without thought as to what doing so could mean for her. Furthermore, in this statement she implies that she had been thinking about marriage with this guy, glossing over the fact they met the night before.

With this elaborate fake dream, the narrator scares her dreaded family through marriage into believing the arranged marriage was not approved by the ancestors of their past.
The film, especially, seems to “betray” the book in that sense. Female power seems more real in Carter's collection, because it is displayed in the stories themselves. But in the film, it turns out the main part of the narrative was the protagonist's dream. Does it mean that changing existing gender roles is merely an unattainable fantasy? As Carole Zucker writes, the movement of the film goes upward to reach liberation from society's normative gender roles, and then falls at the end with Rosaleen waking up in terror (ref of article).
