Cinderella Review
9 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cinderella(2015) Starring: Lily James, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Holliday Grainger, Hayley Atwell, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Derek Jacobi, and Nonso Anozie Directed By: Kenneth Branagh Review Midnight is just the beginning. If their is any spectacle at the movies right now it's Disney's live action Cinderella. It resonates the same princess movie you know and maybe love with something the same but with director Branagh's style. Look I'll be straight with you I personally don't like Disney princess movies but this won me over. When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella's fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger in the woods. The story is nothing new their is no twist like Maleficent, but I like that your giving me a good movie and making it great by getting a stellar cast, beautiful costumes, and making it live action. There are also no songs in the movie which is the only difference which for me is good because I am not a fan of musicals. The opening is with narrating from the fairy godmother about Elle's childhood with her mother and father until disaster strikes. Lily James(downtown Abbey) is so good as Cinderella and she was my favorite part of the movie her acting made me give a crap about the character and anticipate all the things we knew would happen to her. My second favorite cast member from the movie was Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother which is surprising to me because other then the harry potter movies and Big Fish I just usually don't like her. Cate Blanchett was amazing as the evil stepmother and very funny. The rest of the cast did good and each had a moment to shine. The movie was made to experiment with live action fairy tales/princess movie and see if they can make something special the lady's and kids while providing that sense of nostalgia and well I think they got it right. The story also does have a message although it's been misconceived for to be accepting for who you are, and while yes that is one thing to take away from this movie but I believe the message is to have courage and be kind. Cinderella boasts to the highest part of the live action princess/fairy tale kingdom as being the best princess movie I have ever seen. It doesn't need music, it doesn't need memorability, it needs a good story and to be a beautiful spectacle. I'm giving Cinderella a five out of five.
