If a film review’s purpose is to inform you whether a movie delivers on its promise, then covering Disney’s live action Cinderella remake is the simplest and happiest of tasks for a critic. Quite simply this Cinderella delivers EXACTLY what it promises. Perfectly. Beautifully. Magically.

Though this Cinderella could never replace Disney's animated classic, it's no ugly stepsister either, but a deserving companion.

Branagh and Weitz stick lovingly to the legend throughout...

A heady sugar-rush in the moment, but empty and a little nauseating over the long haul.

Kenneth Branagh's lavish live-action telling of the folktale made familiar to many by Disney's 1950 animated feature film is a faithful take that derives pleasure in updating expectations and absolutely never dashing them.

Underlines the virtues of kindness and courage in a heroine right out of the pages of a traditional storybook...

A retrograde fantasy with the depth of a dressing-up box, but it’s spirited, genuinely funny and played to the hilt by an excellent cast.
