Thanks to Goldfish, on Wednesday evening, my daughter and I attended the Cinderella premiere downtown Toronto. You must see this wonderful remake of Cinderella; it is as magical as Disney’s original animated version. For that little girl inside of me, it sparked the same joy and amazement I once felt as a little girl.
If you ask my teen-aged daughter, “the Prince is cute” and “the movie is good”. If you press her on, you might get “the movie is really good”.
Either version, the movie is definitely worth watching! P.S. You’ll also enjoy the Frozen short.
The Cast: Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgård, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Derek Jacobi, Helena Bonham Carter, Nonso Anozie, Ben Chaplin, Hayley Atwell
Synopsis: Ella (Lily James), a daughter of a merchant who remarries following the death of his wife, is eager to support her father as she welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into their house. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a cruel new family.
One day, Ella meets a stranger in the woods. Unaware that he is a prince, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. When the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, Ella realizes it’s her chance to once again see the charming Kit (Richard Madden). However, her stepmother forbids her to attend. But a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and changes Cinderella’s life forever.
Watch the Trailer:
Once the movie was over, we were each treated with a bag of the Princess Limited Edition Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Baked Snack Crackers [Cheddar Flavour]! This classic treat has made a special pink version of our beloved Goldfish crackers that is as pretty as yummy! We shared our GoldfishSmiles moment all the way home in our taxi-ride.
I’ll be posting a giveaway soon so watch out for it!
