I was pleased to find that it was on Netflix and sat down to give it a watch.It didn’t have the strongest story, but I can certainly see why it is a well-reviewed movie within the Pagan, Wicca, and witchcraft communities—though it is still not without its issues. Our teenage protagonist, Rhea, comes from a reclusive artistic family who also worships an ancient goddess.But Rhea doesn’t know that her family has magic, and on top of this, Rhea shows signs of possessing all three magical abilities, which makes her particularly special according to her family’s tradition.I don’t want to say much more and give anything away, but it was an excellent family-friendly Pagan movie.The best thing about this movie is definitely the portrayal of a Pagan family and their traditions and beliefs. They do backyard farming and reuse and recycle things that can be recycled; even the art the family creates has a heavy emphasis on nature.
While Pagans today aren’t always persecuted in such extreme ways, they still deal with a significant amount of prejudice from our largely Christian society, which views their beliefs as evil.The family goes out into the woods wearing long dresses and wreaths on their head to gather items in nature as an offering to the goddess on the equinox.They also pray together as a family — not just during the equinox, but also simply when they sit down to eat together.During this time, however, Rhea’s magical powers begin to awaken.Each woman in Rhea’s family possesses a different gift—Rhea’s grandmother controls the elements, her mother sees the future, and Rhea is supposed to receive the gift of healing.
