Amazing New Movie #Cinderella has deep Christian elements - Watch Trailer

Kenneth Branagh's "Cinderella" has deeply Christian elements. Fr. Robert Barron, Lily James and Richard Madden star in a scene from the movie "Cinderella." Brothers Grimm wrote the original tale and Walt Disney adapted it. In Branagh's version, Ella is the daughter of good parents. However, her mother dies early but tells Ella always to be “kind and courageous.” Her father then remarries and brings his new wife and her two daughters to the home. Years later, Ella’s father leaves on a business trip. A few weeks later, there is news that the father became sick and died.  Ella is treated badly by her stepmother (played by  Cate Blanchett) and her stepsisters. They force her to sleep by the fire. Even the cat belonging to the stepfamily is called Lucifer.  Ella meets a handsome young prince, the son of the King. They fall in love. Because she returned home, the prince calls a ball and invites all of the young women of the realm. Cinderella, through her fairy godmother, goes to the ball, and the prince transforms Cinderella into a princess. She then offers forgiveness to her step-mother.
