Cinderella is a 2015 American romantic fantasy film directed by Kenneth Branagh, with a screenplay written by Chris Weitz. Produced by David Barron, Simon Kinberg and Allison Shearmur for Walt Disney Pictures, the story is based on Charles Perrault’s eponymous folk tale. Although not a direct remake, the film borrows many elements from Walt Disney’s 1950 animated film of the same name. The film stars Lily James as Ella (“Cinderella”), Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine (the Wicked Stepmother), Richard Madden as Prince Charming, Sophie McShera as Drisella, Holliday Grainger as Anastasia, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother.
Cinderella had its world premiere on February 13, 2015, at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival. It was released on March 13, 2015. Upon its release, the film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $542 million worldwide.
There’s always been a fairytale element to Kenneth Branagh’s directing career; the question of whether or not he’ll go to the ball tends to hang over all his movies, right up until the clock strikes 12. One of Branagh’s finest fantasy flicks, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, was as cruelly treated as any of Charles Perrault’s fabled heroines, while the marvellously Ken Russell-esque The Magic Flute signally failed to be showered with riches or made the belle of any box-office ball. Meanwhile, the Hitchcock pastiche Dead Again went from being a copper-bottomed catastrophe to a Stateside hit after an 11th-hour sprinkling of fairy dust (in the form of reprocessed black-and-white flashbacks) turned it from pauper to princess. Most remarkably, Branagh took the straw of Marvel’s Thorcomic strip and spun from it the gold of a surprisingly witty blockbuster (Transformers meets Xanadu), a remarkable feat of movie magic.
And so to Cinderella, a live-action reboot of one of Disney’s most enduring animations (the credits cite their “Cinderella properties” alongside Perrault), notable for its straight-faced sentimentality and unfashionable absence of post-Enchanted irony. While Maleficent and Into the Woods unpicked their fairytale roots, Chris Weitz’s screenplay is almost radically anti-revisionist in its refusal to rewrite familiar tropes. This is an unashamedly old-fashioned world of pumpkin coaches, glass slippers and chimes-at-midnight transformations. Why, Cinders even talks to the tiny mice who are the only friends in her coal-scuttle existence; I half expected her to burst into a chorus of A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes. Resisting modern urban updates, Branagh thus returns us to the strange netherworld of European folklore and Disney Americana upon which the House of Mouse was built. If that sounds fantastically unexciting, a $132m worldwide opening proves that Branagh’s “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” instincts were entirely on the money.
It’s all a far cry from the project first announced back in 2010, when the financial success of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland promptedDisney to greenlight Aline Brosh McKenna’s Cinderella script to whichNever Let Me Go director Mark Romanek was attached. Although fragments of McKenna’s reported “political marriage” theme remain in Weitz’s rewrite, Romanek jumped ship in early 2013 amid reports of disagreements about “a darker version than Disney were happy with”. While there’s nothing in Branagh’s film to frighten the magical horses (the BBFC description delightfully warns of “very mild scenes of emotional upset”), there’s plenty to like, and a little to love. Visually, it’s a timeless treat, the modernity of the whizz-bang CG effects offset by Haris Zambarloukos’s handsome widescreen 35mm cinematography. The ball scene in particular is breathtaking, carefully choreographed cameras swirling around production designer Dante Ferretti’s dazzling sets with the grace and charm of a classic Hollywood musical. Patrick Doyle’s orchestral score charms too, harking back to a bygone era of ravishing romance while emphasising the nuances of character that the script sometimes fails to flesh out.
