Have Courage, Be Kind …..Disney’s Cinderella
The greatest lesson we can learn for Disney’s Cinderella is to “Have Courage and be kind for where there is kindness, there is goodness and where there is goodness there is magic”
Midnight is just beginning-will you be at the ball? In this enchanted fairy tale come to life, Disney has managed to capture every magical element that made the original animated classic so engrained in the hearts of all. Once upon a time, from humble beginnings, an ordinary working girl believed and in the end was rewarded with a most extraordinary life. Whether your young or old, or just young at heart, everyone wants to believe in the most classic of all fairy tales-that anyone can grow up, find her Prince Charming and live happily ever after. Cinderella is the ultimate tale of good vs. evil; of tragedy vs. triumph but most importantly that if you believe in something, and believe in it with all of your heart, someday all of your dreams can and do come true. And now Disney is bringing this most beloved tale back to life.
Disney’s live action Cinderella, brings to life the journey of poor Ella, who despite the misfortunes in her life, still believes in the goodness and kindness of the world.
So just how does one begin to take on the challenge of bringing the world’s most beloved classic animated fairy tale to life?
You start by bringing in Director Kenneth Branagh and Screenwriter Chris Weitz who brilliantly capture all the elements of the original while still putting a fresh spin on our beloved story. Add to that a perfectly cast ensemble and you have everything and more that will not only capture your hearts and imagination but will make you fall in love with the timeless story all over again.
The exquisite performances that Branagh draws from this talented cast, all the while being faithful to the original story are the real magic behind the film.
Lily James is perfect as Cinderella. From the moment she steps onto the screen, she exudes a special brand of kindness and emotion in the face of adversity that will fill your heart with joy. With the raise of any eyebrow, or just a single look,
Kate Blanchett deliciously plays Lady Tremaine with evil precision, but at one point, is poignant as she shares a glimpse into what drove her to that place where ambition reigns supreme above all else. Enter Richard Madden as the love-struck Prince wonderfully, full of charm even in his most vulnerable moment as a son forced to face his beloved father’s mortality. Cap it off with the brilliant Helena Bonham Carter as the daffy Fairy Godmother and the delightfully zany antics of Sophie McShera as Drisella and Holliday Grainger as Anastasia, and don’t forget about Cinderella’s faithful companions, the mice, and you all the makings of a new found timeless classic that will live on in your heart, and in the hearts of generations to come.
Put on your glass slipper and head off to the Ball- Cinderella is now in theaters everywhere. Where will you be when the clock strikes midnight?
Be a part of all of the magic:
