CINDERELLA (2015): Watch It For The Spectacular Win Against The Bullies & Cate Blanchett, Of Course

My reason for watching the new version of Cinderella had very little to do with the romance. I watched the movie because of the cast, particularly one of my favourites, super Australian Actress, Cate Blanchett.

The well edited trailer with the perfect musical score also helped, but ultimately, I was most excited to see how Director Kenneth Branagh handled cinderella’s battle with her evil step mother and horrid step sisters.

The film is beautiful thanks to Branagh and his well chosen cast which includes Lily James in the title role, Helena Bonham as the Fairy Godmother and Richard Madden portraying Prince Charming.

Besides having good dialogue and being quite the visual spectacle, the movie had me reflecting on my own experience of courage and the gift of kindness, especially when it comes from the most unexpected place.

Watch to see a rightful win and of course there is the fairytale romance.

CINDERELLA (2015): Cate Blanchett Is Who…? Watch It And Delight!

The following aren’t words that would ordinarily come out of my mouth, but lately, ‘I’ve been hankering  for a Cinderella movie remake‘.

And now, with Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother, is there a better way to do it? I can hear everyone’s resounding ‘NO, of course not!‘ all at once and I like it.

Cinderella is simply one of the best fairy tales out there, if not the best. Not because of the famous romance, mind you. But rather thanks to the story of triumph over the unkind and cruel. Particularly when one triumphs without sacrificing one’s character and principles.

I’ve watched the trailer a very high number of times and the great music is a huge part of the reason:

Bring on March 2015!

Happy Film Loving:-)
