Kenneth Branagh believes the essence of Cinderella as a character can be seen as she enters the ball. "She lit up from within. She didn't trade one personality at the door; she brought her real self into this real place and found a way to be at ease." See more »
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 »

Magical to say the least! Cinderella was truly magnificent. Like the beloved fairytale, Cinderella (Lily James) is a servant girl to her two ugly step sisters (Sophie McShera and Holiday Granger) and her cruel and unspeakably vile step mother (Cate Blanchett). However, when the king (Derek Jacobi) hosts a royal ball in order to find a suitable wife for his son (Richard Madden), who should appear but that servant girl dressed in a dazzling gown and glass slippers that were given to her by her very own fairy godmother (Helena Bonham Carter)? From the romance to the slightly altered plot, this movie was spectacular! The screenplay, although based off an old fairytale, still managed to be original and entertaining. The characters were wonderfully developed and the actors were able to play off of each other so well. As for Cinderella and Prince Charming, the romance could not be more believable. You could practically see sparks flying around the whole theater as they meet for the first time. The costumes were gorgeous and the music, beautiful. Everyone who worked on this film did an amazing job. This movie provides all the feelings of young love through a heart wrenching, romantic, and inspiring story of a dirty servant girl and one true Prince Charming. I give this movie 8/10 glass slippers!
