Okay, enough kvetching. I've been over what bugged me about the movie a couple of times—you can catch up, if you care to, with my post Cinderella: 5 Things I Loved, 5 Things I Didn't — and now it's time to move on!
But being that it's my Slacker Sunday, the day where instead of spending far too much time on this little blog — it's become more of an obsession than a hobby — I roll over and go back to sleep or grab another cup of coffee and focus on Meet the Press; if you don't mind I'm going to share the New York Times Anatomy of a Scene featuring director Kenneth Branagh discussing the meeting of Cinderella and the Prince.
Unlike the traditional story the famous couple meet before the ball in Branagh's version. I guess that's something. It is a beautiful setting; as Branagh says, there's something magical about having these two gorgeous young people meet on horseback, surrounded by 600 year old trees, trees older than Shakespeare.
