Trivia

When in costume as Prince Kit, the tight pants made Richard Madden's bulge stick out. As this film is supposed to be family friendly, several methods were used to try and hide his genitalia such as having Richard try on several jock straps so that nothing could be seen through the trousers. One of the straps was apparently so tight that Richard actually teared up in pain. See more »

Goofs

When the painter falls, we see his palette on a right angle. The tin on the palette would have a paint thinner inside; however, nothing falls out of the tin when he falls. It would be impossible to use his paints without it. See more »

Stunningly beautiful
15 February 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Kenneth Branagh's lavish retelling of Cinderella is one for the books, a dazzling jewel amongst live action Disney fare, boasting a well written story and fleshed out characters to accompany the visual flair. The writing is considerably redone from the original animated version, with more for every person to say and do, and an overall maturity to the work. Lily James is radiant as Cinderella, whose loving parents (Ben Chaplin and Hayley Atwell almost steal the movie before it even really begins with their warmhearted, comforting performances) are taken from her at a young age. She's left with her icy stepmother and two stank ass ugly stepsisters, and off kicks that timeless story which we all know so well, given some cobweb shaking new ground to tread this time around. The prince she meets (Richard Madden) is a full blooded man with a lust for life and a desire to find the right woman, smitten by Cinderella every time he encounters her. Her fairy godmother (an adorably befuddled Helena Bonham Carter) makes magic and then some in the classic carriage sequence, with pumpkin, goose and some fantastic lizard footmen all springing wildly to life. The costume design is right outta town, every dress and waistcoat a multicoloured, gilded masterpiece of artistic inspiration, and Cinderella's classic ball gown is an enchanting magnum opus of production design. Cate Blanchett takes a previously one note antagonist and whips her up into three dimensional form, displaying aching flickers of humanity buried like dying embers in the gritty ash of the stepmothers life-sick soul. Stellan Skarsgard makes a smarmy Grand Duke, and Derek Jacobi provides wit and warmth as a most level headed King. A knockout of a Disney adaptation and the best version of Cinderella I've seen to date.
