CINDERELLA: That Disney Magic is in top form in this live-action retelling of the fairy tale directed with a touch of genius by Kenneth Branagh. Granted some of the magic belongs to the computer graphics but there is a great deal to be admired in the acting department as well. Lily James makes a winsome and beautiful Ella and Cate Blanchet is absolutely ravishing as the wicked stepmother. Throw in a dashing prince in the person of Richard Madden then add a scene stealing Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother and you have a new Disney masterpiece and one that will last for generations to come. Go see for yourself. You won't be disappointed. And, although it's early in the year, Oscars for costumes and production design may be in the future. (As a side note, Disney has just signed Tim Burton to direct next years live-action DUMBO and that will make us believe an elephant can fly, I'm sure.)
