Brief Synopsis: "When Ella's merchant father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of her jealous and cruel stepmother and stepsisters. Relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella since she used to work in the cinders, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Then one day, she meets a dashing stranger in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if 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." Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever."

Sober Film Chick Mary Dieng40 - Cinderella is a tale that we all are intimately familiar with. We have seen it in in films, cartoons, books and even recently on Broadway. In my humble opinion, it did not need to be remade into a live action film if Disney and Branagh were not going to bring something new and fresh to the table.
