After The Ball

After the Ball (2015)

Genre: Comedy, Romance

This is another take on that Cinderella story so predictability was always going to be high with this movie. However, as predictable as it was this was a fairly entertaining film πŸ™‚ . Its pace was light but easy to follow and has odd humour moments πŸ™‚ . The beginning starts well and the new modern take of her stepmother and sisters being part of a family business works. They are obviously mean to her but it works in way that is acceptable for a modern world (that no-one else noticing the work harassment and so on πŸ˜› ). The romance is also typical but sweet between Kate (Portia Doubleday) and Daniel (Marc-Andre Groudin) who you do want together (but the pull isn’t that strong as I don’t think I would have minded if they didn’t get together πŸ˜› ). I think what saved this movie for me was about part way through switching from being another Cinderella retelling to a Twelfth Night. The main girl, Portia Doubleday, plays greatΒ  “Nate” and the humour excels in this part of the narrative πŸ™‚ . I really wanted her to succeed and I think from this point on was when I felt a connection with the characters. However, on the downside the climax was not that big so the resolution became lukewarm because of it. Though it did end happily and the moment when Daniel realises who Nate is was a great and sweet scene. Plus the costumes are good and I was quite entertained and captivated even with its flaws πŸ˜€ . Overall, this is a light hearted, romantic comedy that is worth the watch for those love the romantic comedy genre πŸ™‚ . Enjoy πŸ˜€

I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
