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

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 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.

Initially intriguing, but essentially a forgettable B-movie that's more exhausting and frustrating than fun or suspenseful.

Ian Softley is far too interested in the minutia of the plot to bother with the Chabrolian elements of bourgeois excess or the Hitchcockian themes of mistaken identity.

This overblown melodrama mistakes sensationalism for story, and is yet another repulsive tale of women's friendships as toxic.

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.

Trap For Cinderella achieves the considerable feat of being as pretentious and annoying as its lead characters' names.

Maybe a Hitchcock or Chabrol could have made something gripping from the melodrama and mystery of it all but this feels workmanlike and obvious.

There's a very classy cast in supporting roles (Kerry Fox, Frances de la Tour, Alex Jennings) but this fails to come alive.

tylish and moody, this twisty dramatic thriller gets under our skin with its mysterious tone and darkly insinuating performances.

July 11, 2013 Full Review Source:

Even as a Sunday night TV drama, this feels overplayed ...

July 8, 2013 Full Review Source: Scotsman

Solid genre fare.

Very clearly, this is a women's film devised by men and, for our leading ladies, that's the trap.
