Movie Review: “Cinderella”

   Rated PG

A remake of the animated Disney classic, Cinderella tells orphan Ella’s story.  Starting with her loving childhood, moving onto the abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepmother and stepsisters and ending happily with her marriage to the king, Cinderella is a gem!

A modern remake with a feminist message, I would absolutely take a young girl to see this movie.  The casting is outstanding-Lily James is perfect as brave, kind Ella; as are Cate Blanchett as the cruel stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as Ella’s fairy godmother.  Entertaining and visually stunning, Cinderella is a movie for everyone!
