“The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.”
There’s something about Lily James’ nose that breaks the illusion… I’m not mesmerized by her performance as Cinderella here, I find her aquiline nose too off putting… Also at 25 she’s a bit too old for this particular role… LoL!
