Versions of Cinderella

Fairy tales, as we’ve shown in quite a few posts on this blog, are prone to myriad reinventions and adaptations, not least in cinema. There are countless variations on ‘Cinderella’; here’s a summary of some of the recent film versions. Kenneth Brannagh’s new cinematic version of ‘Cinderella’, however, attracts criticism from Judy Berman here for its uncritical adherence to the questionable gender politics of the older versions. She sets this against an account of the many revisions of the tale, from 1970s feminist retellings to contemporary web-based fan-fiction remixes of Disney princesses.
