Celebrate the transformative power of kindness with Disney's Cinderella, a modern classic that shines with beauty, imagination...and magic! Despite being bullied by her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and stepsisters, a spirited Ella (Lily James) refuses to despair or retaliate, choosing instead to honour her mother's last words: "Have courage and be kind". Then one day, she meets a remarkable, like-minded man in the woods and she resolves to take charge of her fate in hopes of seeing him again. Add a royal ball, a Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) and an enchanted glass slipper and suddenly-magic becomes reality! Cinderella will captivate your whole family forever after.

How it's different than Disney's animated Cinderella movie:
Less cat and mouse.
Less music/singing.
Cinderella and the prince meet before the ball.
An African was inserted.

If you like this movie, I recommend you watch "Ever After" as well.

Ella is elegant and I suppose Kit is the ideal prince/king every girl wants to dance with. The stepsisters were more annoying and thoughtless than mean, and Lady Tremaine never really struck me as evil or even particularly mean. She's just inexplicably bitter.

Yep. It's "Once Upon A Time" all over again.

As I sat watching this "Cinderella" remake - The one question that kept coming to my mind went like this - "Was the retelling of this familiar, old tale really necessary?"

Like - What was the whole point here?

I found that this particular "Cinderella" story contained way too much padding and not near enough substance to hold my attention.

If about 30 minutes had been edited from its 105-minute running time - Then - I think that Cinderella's strained storytelling would've held together so much better, in the long run.

Loved it! Walt Disney would give this two thumbs up!

Of course, with its impressive $95 million budget behind it - This retelling of the familiar "Cinderella" fairy-tale is gonna be a real sight to behold. Indeed. (Just dig those sparkling glass slippers!)

But, where this film's major weakness came into play was in its flimsy, wafer-thin, seen-it-all-before story-line.

I mean - Since just about everyone over the age of 3 knows Cinderella's story inside-out and backwards - What was the point of this extravagant production, anyway? (except to dazzle us with more slick CG imagery)

There were absolutely no surprises in Cinderella's story, whatsoever. I found that the whole production had a decidedly cold and sterile feel to it. And, Cate Blanchett, as the wicked stepmother, was nothing but a completely unconvincing dishrag.

Lovely family movie. She is much braver in this version, a big plus. Love her dress! Favorite one is till Beauty and the Beast! This takes a close second.

This is a pretty good movie.I love Cinderellas dress!! I like the way Cinderella is more brave than in the book, and not as princessy.

Fairy Godmother: I'm your Hairy Dogfather... Oh! I mean, your Fairy Godmother.

Cinderella: Mr. Lizard, I'm scared. I'm only a girl, not a princess.
Lizard Footman: And I'm only a lizard, not a footman. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Ella's Mother: I have to tell you a secret that will see you through all the trials that life can offer. Have courage and be kind.
===
Cinderella: Yes, stepmother.
Lady Tremaine: You needn't call me that. Madam will do.
===
Captain: Madam, there is no other maiden in your house?
Lady Tremaine: No!
Captain: And has your cat learned to sing?
===
Lady Tremaine: I shall tell you a story. Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl who married for love. And she had two loving daughters. All was well. But, one day, her husband, the light of her life, died. The next time she married for the sake of her daughters. But that man, too, was taken from her. And she was doomed to look every day upon his beloved child. She had hoped to marry off one of her beautiful, stupid daughters to the prince. But his head was turned by a girl with glass slippers. And so, I lived unhappily ever after. My story would appear to be ended.

When there is kindness, there is goodness. When there is goodness, there is magic.
