Meet the most fashion-conscious fairy godmother in this stylish reworking of the classic fairy tale by a new brother-and-sister creative duo. Cinderella moves into the era of flapper girls and the Charleston, in a new edition of this famous rags to riches tale. Blinded by love, Cinderella's father marries unwisely and brings home a heartless wife, her argumentative daughters and a very nasty little dog.
