Here is a short review of "The Witches" movie plot summary.
In 1968, a young boy goes to live with his grandmother in Alabama, following a car accident that results in the death of his parents in Chicago. Gradually, the boy is cheered up by his grandmother, who buys him a pet mouse whom he names Daisy. One day, the boy goes to a store to buy a box of nails to train Daisy and to build a house for her as well. The boy is approached by a witch (Penny Lisle) trying to lure him with a snake and a caramel, but the grandmother calls him, and the witch disappears.
After telling the grandmother about the encounter, the boy learns that the witches are in fact real. She says a witch cursed her childhood friend Alice into spending the rest of her life as a chicken. The grandmother says that witches never leave once they find a child. Frantically, they decide to stay in a nearby hotel where her cousin Eston is the executive chef. While there, the grandmother teaches the boy how to tell a witch from an ordinary woman: real witches have claws instead of fingernails, which they hide by wearing gloves; are bald, which they hide by wearing wigs that give them rashes; have square feet with no toes, which they hide by wearing sensible shoes; have a purple tinge in their pupils; and have a powerful sense of smell, which they use to sniff out children.
The next day, the boy takes Daisy and a rope to do some training at a grand hall. During his walk there, he meets a gluttonous but friendly boy named Bruno, who is pulled away by his mother. The boy then goes into the grand hall, thinking he will be alone. As he's getting ready to train Daisy, a group of witches led by their all-powerful leader, the Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway), enters the grand hall. The boy hides under the stage, and so overhears the Grand High Witch planning to give the world's children a potion, mixed into confectionery products, that will transform them all into mice. The Grand High Witch waits for Bruno to arrive, to whom she earlier gave a chocolate bar laced with the potion. After Bruno arrives, he turns into a mouse and enters the vent where the boy and Daisy are hiding. The Grand High Witch discovers the boy and forcibly transforms him into a mouse with the potion, before they escape.
