The story of "Cinderella' follows the fortunes of young
Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her
mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new Stepmother (Cate
Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie
McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes
away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.
Soon, she is forced to become their servant, disrespected,
covered in ashes and spitefully renamed Cinderella. Yet, despite the cruelty
inflicted upon her, Ella will not give in to despair nor despise those who
mistreat her, and she continues to remain positive, determined to honor her
mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.”
When Ella meets a dashing stranger in the woods, unaware that
he is really the Prince (Richard Madden) and not merely Kit, an apprentice at
the palace, she believes she has finally found a kindred soul. It appears her
fortunes may be about to change when the King (Derek Jacobi) summons all maidens
in the kingdom to attend a royal ball at the palace, raising Ella’s hopes of
once again encountering the charming Kit. Alas, her Stepmother forbids her to
attend and callously destroys her dress.
Meanwhile, the calculating Grand Duke (Stellan Skarsgård)
devises a plan to thwart the Prince’s hopes of reuniting with Ella and enlists
the support of the devious Stepmother. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is
at hand. Soon, a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and,
armed with a pumpkin, a few mice and a magic wand, changes Cinderella’s life
