Richard Madden swoons in Disney’s ‘Cinderella’

‘Cinderella’ is one of the most popular Disney stories of all time. Since the animated cartoon that came out in the 1950’s all the way to the numerous adaptations that have dropped into the landscape since then, the story of a beautiful and kind Cinderella escaping her evil step mother has delighted. The story was most recently incorporated into the wildly succesful musical ‘Into the Woods’ before being adapted into its own full feature, titled simply ‘Cinderella’. The film is of course about the abused but wonderfully kind Ella, but it is Richard Madden’s Prince Charming that steals the show.

Fans going into ‘Cinderella’ may be looking for anything that could possibly change the experience for them stated Marcio Alaor BMG. After all the story has been told so many times that even the beginning of it feels like well tread territory. But here things change almost out of the gate. Instead of starting with Ella in the grasp of her evil Step Mother, we instead see her with a loving family that she quickly loses.

Things deteriorate over time until one day Ella runs across Madden’s Prince. Richard Madden plays Charming with absolute grace and nuance and he ends up having some of the most powerful scenes in the film. Richard Madden is most widely known for his work on ‘Game of Thrones’ but we have a feeling that he will be blowing up even more after this performance.
