Stepmother portrayed with modern depth

Although this is about the stepmother, I want to first say that I found all the characters well portrayed and supported by an excellent script, cinematography, and of course a great director. I scanned some of the user reviews and for all those giving a very low rating it seems to me that they missed the essence of Cinderella - it is not supposed to be an action nor hard/boiled tale that apparently even some children want today and should not become such.

I particularly appreciated the stepmother's portrayal because it included clear justification for her anger and bitterness. Not to say given that justification she was correct to have done what she did. But a worthy lesson for us and particularly for children.

The specific scene I am referring to is when she overhears her husband telling his daughter how much he misses her mother, i.e., where is the love and support she desires - a more modern understanding of the difficulty of joining an existing family. This and other related scenes gives the stepmother a depth that makes her more real in place of the one-dimensional cartoon version - but what a joy that version was for me many years ago.

A superb live-action remake

After a young, kind and beautiful girl remains without both her parents, she is left in the care of her merciless and greedy stepmother who transforms her into a servant. Although forced to live a harsh life, Cinderella always remained kind and courageous, in hope of a magical act which might turn her life around. This said, a charming apprentice she meets by accident in the woods might just be what she deserves.

This real action remake of the original Disney animation is a wonderful demonstration that it can be done if you keep the story, present it seriously, hire a couple of good actors who know what is to be done and get a bit of help from a very talented animation team. Add to this mix a good soundtrack and you end up with a very good movie by itself. Yes it is a very good remake and yes, it is a very good movie without having to mention the Disney animation with the same title. Do I recommend it? Without any doubt!

Depends on your personality as to whether you will enjoy or not

It has many similarities to the original DISNEY version, with some variable changes that I felt enhanced the film. I am not surprised at the poor reviews, as these days there are too many platforms for opinions to please everybody. I LOVED this movie and found myself buying it a week after watching it on cable. I loved the CGI, the cast, and felt it enhanced the magic of the 1950s Disney film version. I enjoyed Ever After (Cinderella film), but it did not feel as magical as this version. Cinderella was a favorite movie of mine, but not my favorite. This is my favorite live adaptation of a cartoon (and yes, I quite enjoyed Malificent - Sleeping Beauty remake). I loved it and it's possible you will too. If you are hoping for a new plot twist, or it being based on ideals that resemble (or should) reality, then maybe this isn't for you. If you are picky about things, like Cinderella having a small waist or other superficial things, maybe you should stick to a different type film. Nobody I knew who has seen it was bored once during this film, but I can see why it could be for people with different interests or ideals. If you really can't spare a couple hours to check out the film for yourself, but you have an hour or two to spend reading reviews, then perhaps you really aren't interested in seeing it after all. Nobody can tell you whether it it is good, but you....or maybe someone exactly like you. Hope you enjoy the film too if you do watch it! I loved it!
