Hello guys and welcome to another post from #MovieReview column!
(I wrote this post a long time ago and I decided to post it now because I love this column on my blog and I might start doing these kind of posts again on winter break).
This time, I’m reviewing movie called ‘After the Ball’ .
As you probably see up there on movie poster there’s a quote saying : ‘Fairytales are always in fashion.’ But which fairytale does this look like to you?
It’s Cinderella, of course.
This is a comedy romance movie and it’s just for the days when you are to tired to watch a movie with a deep meaning. Very predictable movie but it’s really relaxing because you know it’ll end happily, as every fairytale does.
The story : A young girl finishes designer school and wants to find a job. Her mother has passed away and her father had created a new family marrying a women with two daughters. After her friends convince her to ask her dad for a job because he owns a fashion company, she gets a job there but her stepsisters give her a job to sort the buttons when she meant she would be a fashion designer there. She accepts that and one day, when her button goes away, she follows it and finds a man who is making shoes for their company. She chats with him and they start their friendship.
After her stepmother convinces her dad she’s a betrayer, that she shares their designs to their competition, she gets fired. Her friends suggest her to start working there again as someone else, which meant she needed to become a man, not like really but to pretend she’s a man. She gets a job as designer and she success at proving her dad the betrayers are her stepmother and stepsisters, not her.
The three of them get kicked out of company and ‘Cinderella’ becomes designer along with her boyfriend who makes amazing shoes now. The relation between her and her dad becomes much stronger and better.
… And they lived happily ever after…
