Watching Disney’s live action 灰姑娘 was like a fun IMDB® game for me – so many familiar British actors! The kind 你 can kind of place but aren’t super famous enough to remember their actual names, even for me, whose brain houses all sorts of useless knowledge about movie trivia. For example, 你 have your Downton Abbey cast members in 灰姑娘 (Lily James, aka Lady Rose), evil stepsister Dresilla (Sophie McShera, aka Daisy). Then 你 also have your Game of Thrones cast in the Prince (Robb Stark 或者 in reality, Richard Madden) and the Captain (Nonso Anozie, a prince of Qarth). Oh...
I didn’t think I would get to go to the ball. My stepsisters ripped up my dress after all. Then out of nowhere my Fairy Godmother appeared. And she told me not to fear. She 说 she would take care of everything. Then she took out her magic wand, and started to swing. She made me a beautiful carriage out of a pumpkin! She looked at me and began to grin. She transformed my rags into the most beautiful dress I’ve ever seen. It was so pretty I could’ve passed as a Queen!
