Trivia

Lily James admitted in an interview with Fox that the carriage's transformation back to pumpkin was one of her favorite scenes to shoot. For the scene, they rigged her in a giant foam pumpkin complete with a trampoline with several harnesses. There was even a scene that was cut which had Lily inside the pumpkin running around with her arms and legs sticking out. See more »

Goofs

When Ella's father leaves on his last business trip, the pair of horses at the carriage he leaves in have no white on their legs. As he carriage pulls into the road (and the camera pans back to Ella), the horses each have four white legs (and are probably the same pair of bay hackney horses that bring Ella's father home in the opening scenes; each horse has a wide blaze on its face and four white stockings). This same pair of very distinctive horses also appear briefly at the beginning of the king's ball, when everyone is arriving. See more »

I actually really enjoyed this movie.
29 March 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Sure it's still got some of the dated gooey-ness of the original movie, sure Shrek's impact on savaging the Disney/fairy-tale formula can still be felt years after release, but Cinderella is a beautifully directed and cinematographed; and Kenneth Branagh did this?

Why do films like this exist in today's industry? Well franchising for one thing, and even though films like this are basically products in Disney's pipeline it CAN be well done given that the movie's got a determined director at the helm. And oddly, Branagh, the guy who directed films such as 1996's Hamlet, was just the guy to make Cinderella into a watchable film. It's pretty, has a good cast and has some nice tid-bits of humor here and there. And it's an update on the whole Disney-esque 'happily ever after' thing. Yes the story's the same but it gives some much-needed chemistry to Cinderella's and 'The Prince''s romantic charm. And... it works.

You don't need to be a girl or a gay to like this film; just see it for what it is: a harmless remake of an animation from the 1950s.
