cinderellaThis adaptation of the old fairy tale was made by Disney and is heavily inspired by their 1950 animated version. The story of the orphaned girl (Lily James) who is mistreated by her wicked stepmother (Cate Blanchett), but gets a magical shot at wooing Prince Charming is girlishly romantic and fun for kids. Handsomely mounted, with top talents behind the costume and production design, and Blanchett is intimidating in a wonderfully bitchy Joan Crawford-esque star turn. But we know this story so well, and thereā€™s no real reason for another straight retelling.
