How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A very sinuous and adult reworking of the classic fair tale as the fairy godmother character doubles as the ghost of Cinderella's biological mother and her father's enduring memory of the mother even as he tries to placate his second wife and step daughters. Then their is the slow but sure evolution of Cinderella's prince from immature swinging single wanting a good time with his friends to mature lover. This version is as much about his transformation as that of Cinderella plus the continued mourning of her father.
