Cinderella 2015 Movie Quotes

Cinderella 2015 movie quotes bring the classic story from the Charles Perrault fairy tale back to theaters for a live-action remake. The Disney film was directed by Kenneth Branagh using a screenplay by Aline Brosh McKenna and Chris Weitz. Cinderella opened in theaters in the United States on March 13, 2015.

In Cinderella, the young Ella (Eloise Webb and Lily James) is seen with her late mother (Hayley Atwell) learning that the key to living a good life is to be courageous and kind. Later, Ella's father (Ben Chaplin) marries Lady Tremaine (Cate Blanchett) at which time Ella joins a family with two stepsisters (Sophie McShera and Holliday Grainger). Neither Ella's stepmother nor her stepsisters treat her well, which, after her father dies, makes Ella's life living with them far from a fairy tale. Ella does, however, meet a man, the handsome Prince Charming (Richard Madden).

So when Ella is shunned from attending a ball at the Prince's palace, she is hurt but soon meets her Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter). The Fairy Godmother transforms Ella into a gorgeous princess and sends her off to the ball, but with some conditions, including that this fantasy will end at midnight. Ella reunites with Prince Charming at the ball, a budding relationship that the King (Derek Jacobi) and Lady Tremaine later conspire to destroy. Without the glitz and glamor, it's up to Ella and Prince Charming to try to rise above the adversity, if they can.

Cinderella 2015 joins theaters some 65 years after the original Disney edition. It opens alongside other great March 2015 movies such as Unfinished Business, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Chappie, and The Lazarus Effect.
