#420 : Day One : Cinderella (2015) - The Movie


I'm surprised at myself. Cinderella never attracted me as a kid. The story didn't make an impression like Akbar-Birbal tale did. Today, this movie - the adaptation of the famous fable, one dialog from the movie to be precise struck a chord.  Television and me, we aren't friends really. I normally watch whatever my dad or sister watches when we all eat together. It's out daily dinner ritual. Today, my sister was flicking away channels and settled upon this movie for the very color of Cinderella's dress - Bright and beautiful blue by the way.

Cinderella is a 2015 American film adaptation of the fable of the same name starring Cate Blanchette as Ella/Cinderella and Richard Madden (Robb Stark from Game of Thrones) as Prince Kit. More about the movie here - Wikipedia

The movie was as simple, neat and heart-warming. The costumes, the dialog and the narration in general was good. I'm no movie buff or a critic, but it felt really good to watch this movie. (despite TNEB's redundant effort to ruin it)

Fun Fact : The blue dress that Cinderella wears to the ball in the movie is 270 yards long and has 10,000 Swarovski crystals embedded (by hand).

Edit One : Did I mention? Helena Bonham Carter, played fairy godmother and it was absolute hilarious to see her decked up as a fairy. Oh and she is the narrator too.

Edit Two : Richard Madden - *drool-worthy*
