It was simply breathtaking! The way they remade the classic and still kept it absolutely beautiful is brilliant! Helena, as always did a wonderful job. She is a genius. A woman who plays a sadistic Bellatrix in Harry Potter and an elegant grandmother in this movie shows how awesome she is. Plus,... Read More »

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.

Disney's live-action remakes of past animated favorites have visually reached a high point with this sumptuous version of Cinderella. Really, you could watch it simply for the gorgeous gowns at the Ball. And Ella's pumpkin coach is sensational. Perhaps Kate Blanchette's stepmother is a bit overwrought at times, but Lily James' ever-radiant face overshadows any possible negatives.

A slightly more mature, live-action retelling of the Disney animated version with gorgeous costumes, good character-building, and a great moral--"Have courage and be kind."--that gives Cinderella her motivation throughout the story without becoming trite. Fans of the original animated version will miss the songs and the mice and bird characters (who are present, but mostly as background characters), but the added back-stories for many characters more than make up for anything that got cut. I thoroughly enjoyed this Disney reboot!

Very touching and great use of the best ballgowns you could possibly imagine. Amazing dancing and great teamwork as the ball takes place on the great marble floor of the pales. The prince and soon to be princess Ella will blow you away with their amazing dance as they hit it off on the dance floor! BY CHEEKY BOB :)👸 🤴 P.S This movie just might be better then Christmas! (But only just!)🎅

Some gorgeous dresses. that was my favourite bit. Cate Blanchett in particular wearing some great clothes. A good solid retelling of the tale, aimed at slightly older audience than the original, though still fun for the whole family. Fleshing out the "evil" stepmother character for a change. Cate Blanchett stunning as always.

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.
