Movie Review: Cinderella (2015)

Cinderella
(2015)

A girl named Ella (Cinderella) has the purest heart living in a cruel world filled with evil stepsisters and an evil stepmother out to ruin Ella's life. Ella comes one with her pure heart when she meets the prince and dances her way to a better life with glass shoes and a little help from her fairy godmother of course.

My Review:

This movie was SO cute! The story was a bit off when compared to the original, but I was happy to discover that there were no cheesy musical pieces during the movie! That was the best part. The cover of this movie is even more awesome now that I saw that that dress actually exists and that photoshop isn't wholly responsible for how it looks. 

The prince (Richard Madden) looked exactly like his animated counter part, though he seemed a little too old in the face to date, let alone marry (what I assume to be), an 18 year old girl. I could see the youth and naiveté of Ella (Lily James). Even though she's well into her twenties, which was a surprise when I looked up her other productions. The Step Mother and Sister's don't really need to be mentioned. They were an annoying presence the entire film. 

Even though the movie was a little over an hour and thirty minutes long, it felt a little rushed. I barely got to see the ball and gawk at all the amazing victorian era dresses that were being showed off.

My Rating:
