Cinderella Synopsis
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. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella’s life forever.

Helena Bonham Carter is certainly no stranger to fantasy and fairy tale films. Not even counting the films she's done with Tim Burton - including Alice in Wonderland, Big Fish, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - there's still the Harry Potter films, in which she played the evil/insane Bellatrix Lestrange. And now she's getting ready to add yet another title to her long genre record.

Chris Weitz has had one ridiculously strange movie career. Beginning in the late 90s, Weitz's writing/directing filmmography is one of the most eclectic you'll find, working in various genres like R-rated comedy (American Pie), teen romance (The Twilight Saga: New Moon), Oscar-nominated dramedy (About A Boy), animation (Antz), adventure (The Golden Compass), and Oscar-nominated drama (last year's A Better Life).
