Rainy day movie a few weeks ago. Having seen Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on stage three times, I was pretty positive I’d love this movie. And so, unsurprisingly, I did.
Cinderella (2015) is a live action version of the classic animated film, starring Lily James as Ella, Richard Madden as the Prince, and Cate Blanchett as Ella’s ‘evil’ stepmother. The film diverges from the story we know at certain points, most notably the addition of a meeting in the woods before there’s even any discussion of a ball, but at it’s heart remains exactly what you’d expect.
