Penelope (Prime Video)

The Wilhern family was cured long ago that the next born daughter would be born with the snout of a pig, but there were no daughters until generations later when Penelope Wilhern was born.

It is believed that the only way for her to break the curse is to marry one of her own kind. Penelope meets many suitors behind a one way mirror, but as soon as they see her they all reject her and are forced to sign a confidentiality form. 

However, there are two men who hold a grudge against the family. They hire a man (James MacAvoy) to pose as a suitor to get a photo of Penelope that they can have published in the papers, but complications arise as he begins to fall in love with Penelope. 

Also featuring Simon Woods, Peter Dinklage, Catherine O’Hera and Reese Witherspoon, the film is sure to be hilarious and heartwarming.
