Movie Info

Micky is a fun-loving photographer, living a party lifestyle in London until a chance encounter with a childhood friend changes her world forever. The opposite to life-and-soul Micky, Do is a quiet bank clerk, with little by way of a social life. Yet much to the annoyance of her DJ boyfriend Jake, Micky is all too delighted to reacquaint herself with Do, embracing her old friend with typical gusto. But when they return to the tranquil French villa where they spent so many happy summers in their youth, tragedy strikes. A fire engulfs the building, leaving Do dead and Micky badly burnt and blighted by amnesia. Unable to even recall her own name, Micky is forced on a shocking journey of self-discovery. For nothing - friends, relatives, lovers and even herself - is as she remembers it. (c) IFC Midnight

Critic Reviews for Trap For Cinderella

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4)

  • The erotic thriller "Trap for Cinderella" is neither erotic nor thrilling, but rather reliant on cheap nudity and multiple mistaken-identity switcheroos in hopes of keeping us on edge.

  • Softley is a great director but has maybe let his own obsession - with Sebastien Japrisot's 1962 novel - blind him to the essential lameness of the project. Someone lend this man a good book.

    Jul 12, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a very classy cast in supporting roles (Kerry Fox, Frances de la Tour, Alex Jennings) but this fails to come alive.

    Jul 11, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Softley negotiates layers of deceit with skill, but an uncharacteristic visual and narrative tightness leaves one wondering what might have been.

  • The plot is ludicrously far-fetched, but despite some plodding dialogue, committed performances from leads Tuppence Middleton and Alexandra Roach make this tale of jealousy and betrayal a heady treat.

  • Despite some strong performances and an interesting style, there are just too many holes in the story, keeping Trap For Cinderella from being a completely compelling thriller.
