Rating: 5 stars
The shots were bright, raw and rustic, really helped to bring out the contemporary vibe to the movie.
The music was mellow, soft, emotional and mainly consisted of piano pieces which helped to pull up the emotional factor of the movie.
After Indy’s mother passed away, all Indy has with her is a cat and her new family who treat her like a maid. When Bryant, the popular guy in school accidentally kills her cat, she hates him but he doesn’t stay away.
I really, REALLY hated her relatives, they were such bitches to her.
Some scenes, I did feel that the acting was weak, but the overall movie was touching and pretty good. It was also deeper than I thought it would be since I thought it was just going to be another one of those Cinderella retellings, but it was more than that.
This has to be the most modern and realistic take on Cinderella I’ve ever seen, and I have to say I’m pretty impressed. It was also adapted from a book by Jenni James
