When gown (James) meets jodhpurs (Madden) in the pivotal ballroom scene, the chemistry is palpable. In a scene that could have been a large bowl of Edwardian cheese, the two young actors give off plenty of old-fashioned romantic sparks.
Kenneth Branagh's live action adaptation of Cinderella is a delightful rendition, if surprisingly traditional, that honours the classic fairy tale with a sweet, humorous and earnest treatment befitting a Disney film.
Even allowing that Blanchett wrings a wee bit of actual pathos from the added backstory of her character's bitterness, these performances, like the CG concessions of animated animals, are irritatingly overdone.
Sir Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Cinderella may not add anything new to the beloved tale, but with an excellent cast and an elegant sense of style, it makes for a magical and quite charming version of the story that all ages can enjoy.
