Set in the 1850s in Victorian England, the film is a live action retelling of the classic tale based on the story 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King' by E.T.A. Hoffman
Clara (Female) - aged 13-17 years
Lead role. Clever, creative and independent, Clara goes against female societal conventions of the period. At the beginning of the story she is lacking in confidence, struggling to cope with the death of her mother and trying to find her footing in the adult world. Uninterested in beauty and fashion, Clara is most herself when inventing contraptions and going on adventures; she is most comfortable in her own imagination. As she grows through the film we find her to be self sufficient, strong willed, curious, witty, inventive and ultimately confident in herself. She can be any height or ethnicity.
