Have courage and be kind.
Commentary: I was beyond excited when I first found out about the new Cinderella movie. The movie was beautifully done, I loved the casting, and it was fun for everyone to watch. The movie was absolutely fantastic. For a life action, I thought it was done superbly. I loved the animated Disney classic and I love this movie just the same. I like how the story begins with Cinderella’s childhood. Now most Cinderella adaptations mostly start with Cinderella already living with her cruel step-family, but it was refreshing to see into Cinderella’s past. I liked how the movie demonstrated Cinderella’s close relationship to both of her parents before she became an orphan. I did cry when her mother died and then when her father died as well, even though I knew what was going to happen. I thought that Amanda Seyfried would have been the best choice to play Cinderella, but after seeing Lily James’ performance, I take back my words. Lily James was perfect for the role and though she got minimal singing scenes, I loved the way she sang. Cate Blanchett was amazing as Lady Tremaine, and I was not expecting the Duke to be the second antagonist in the movie. Didn’t see that one coming. Helena Bonham Carter was perfect as the Cinderella’s fairy godmother, the scene when she starts transforming the pumpkin into a carriage was hilarious. In addition, I liked how the prince and Cinderella met prior to the ball. As much as I love the animated version, I have to say that they fell in love to quickly, while the live action was trying to build up the romance. I found it cute that the prince did not reveal his true identity until the night of the ball.The ball scene was beautifully done, and by the time the prince and Cinderella had their first dance, I was expecting “So This Is Love” playing as they danced. One of my favorite scenes had to be when Cinderella forgives Lady Tremaine as she goes with her prince to live happily ever after. Lastly, the movie was fun to watch, and I would definitely rewatch it.
Final Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
