The Cinderella film, directed by Kenneth Branagh, recently enjoyed its premiere and will be released on March 27th. Following the fortune of young Ella (Lily James),whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother, and then experiences the unexpected death of her father, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new stepmother (Cate Blanchett), and stepsisters (Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera). Despite being relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, Ella is determined to honour her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind”…and so it unfolds.
