My Review:

I don't know who was more excited to watch this movie, me or my four year old daughter!   The animated version of Cinderella was one of my absolute favorites growing up, so I couldn't wait to see this film.

The cast is incredible.  I have loved just about everything I've seen Helena Bonham Carter in, and she was very funny and endearing as a fairy godmother.  And it's no secret that I love Downton Abbey, so it was great to see Lily James and Sophie McShera in this movie.  Lily James is the perfect embodiment of kind and courageous Ella!  And can you say gorgeous in those gowns?  Nearly every little girl's dream is to wear a gown and dance like that at a ball!  I loved the story line and Cate Blanchett was deliciously mean and dynamic as the step-mother.  

There wasn't anything I didn't like about this film.  And it was awesome to hear Lily James and Helena Bonham Carter sing during the credits!  You'll find yourself singing along to the classic  "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" and "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo".   We've already added the sound track to our Christmas wish list!  {Lily James has a beautiful singing voice and you can easily recognize Helena Bonham Carter}

If you're a fan of this classic story, you won't be disappointed in this family-friendly movie.  There's a lot of humor, magic, gorgeous scenery and costumes, love/romance and a beautiful theme of kindness woven throughout.
