Review By Monique Thompson
When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella’s fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger in the woods.
The story of Cinderella and her evil step mom and sisters is certainly nothing new. From young to old, this classic story never seems to get old and filmmakers alike just won’t let it. The story line remains the same but the advancement of computer generated remastering makes for a pretty solid remake. The pretty cool computer generated animation and images makes for a vivid and colorful experience to contribute to the whole “fairytale” montage.
Contrary to the original though, this version does elaborate a little more on Cinderella’s father and mother, providing a little background history on what kind of remained a mystery in the original. Another plus for this remake is the fact that it’s not as “girly” as everyone may think. While most love stories are typically geared towards the female gender, this remake isn’t so much.
Starring: Lily James (Cinderella), Cate Blanchett, and Richard Madden (Prince)
