Cinderella Review Be Kind and Have Courage! #ad

I was provided tickets to facilitate the writing of this review. This is my honest opinion on the film.

This movie was lovely and spoke to our humanity. I had a great date with my daughter to go see this movie. She loved it. We talked about it for 2 days afterward. It was lovely to see a woman overcome her circumstances and keep her dignity about her the entire time. She was treated horribly after having two very tragic events in her life. I would want myself or my children to be able to do the same. Above all have courage and be kind indeed. Make sure you take your daughter and sons to see this movie. You’ll be happy you did. It has a powerfully simple message that hits its mark every time. Above all have courage and be kind! We all need to hear that time and again.

cinderella movie

 

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella’s life forever.
