Trivia

To give the chemistry that real-life sisters had, Sophie McShera and Holliday Grainger were asked to improvise their lines on set during their first day of shooting. 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 »

Disney Excels Again
1 February 2017 | by 3DSpecsSee all my reviews

My disappointment was hearing that critics had found fault with this work of perfection.

The characterisation has been thought through carefully and the temptation to make caricatures of the step-mother and her daughters consciously resisted.

The retelling of "Cinderella" (apparently known, in the 19th century, as "Cinderslut") with the benefits of modern techniques and processes is impeccable.

Often, films that are 'great works' suffer from some minor weakness or other, a detail not followed through, a hasty bit of editing, a clipped or overly long scene but never did I feel that could be said about Disney's film. "TLC" (tender loving care") from beginning to end.

True to Walt's original intentions, here is a film for all the family (well, some teenagers may want to wait a little).

Good luck, it's great to see memorable films making it to our screens.
