Trivia

According to Sandy Powell, the costume designer didn't want Ella's main outfit to be rags or a patchwork dress. Instead, Cinderella wears a dress that gradually deteriorates and fades in color, but looked like something she would have worn in happier days when her father was still alive. The dress is made of aqua cotton voile and has small pale pink flowers almost hidden in the material. See more »

Goofs

When Lady Tremaine sends Cinderella to the attic for the first time, the entrance to the long staircase is past the living room on the ground floor. When Cinderella exits the attic at the end of the film to meet the Prince downstairs, she descends the grand staircase from the second floor into the foyer. Unless there was another exit from the attic stairs to the second floor, she would have entered on the ground floor. See more »

Stepmother for the win!
7 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

I never thought I would sympathize so much with the Evil Stepmother, but this movie managed to do it.

Cate Blanchett did a terrific job, and besides you really have to feel sorry for someone dealing with raising three girls by herself, without being able to get any money except through their marriages, with two being utterly silly and her stepdaughter being such a nice pushover that she responds to everything with "Have courage and be kind", even when it is out of context.

I wanted to slap or shake Cinderella several times, and by the end I was rooting for her stepmother to win, which is not the original aim of the movie. Another detail that bothered me, I liked Luscious Malfoy blond hair with dark eyebrows, but here it really doesn't work.
