I needed a break from Blacklist, the series we’ve been watching for the past couple of months. I told Studly Doright that a change of pace was in order and to my surprise he suggested the new Cinderella movie.
After checking to see if he had a fever (he didn’t) I agreed, and we settled in for an evening of wonderful entertainment. Well, I loved it. The jury is still out on Studly’s reaction. You see, musicals aren’t his thing.
The film is clever and adorable and a love letter to feminism. How I wish I’d been exposed to this version in my youth.
Biggest surprise—Camila Cabello as Cinderella.
Biggest surprise honorable mentions—James Corden as a mouse and Idina Menzel as the stepmother.
