FILMS SHOWING THIS WEEK AT THE EMBASSY CINEMAS: CINDERELLA AND CHAPPIE

Children and adults alike will enjoy the films which are showing around Easter at the Embassy Cinemas.

Here is some information about a few of them.

Cinderella. This British romantic fantasy film is inspired by the well-loved fairy tale Cinderella by Charles Perrault, with references to the Brothers Grimm’s version of the story and also the 1950’s version by Walt Disney. Directed by the renowned Kenneth Branagh from a screenplay written by Chris Weitz, the cast for this film is impressive.

Synopsis: Ella’s mother died when she was very young and when her father unexpectedly passes away too, young Ella (Lily James) finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother Lady Tremaine (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters, Drizella (Sophie McShera) and Anastasia (Holliday Grainger). Never one to give up hope and with the help of her magical friends and animals, Ella’s fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger (Richard Madden).

Chappie. This science fiction film is directed by Neill Blomkamp and is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. The film’s slogan sums it up well, ‘Humanity’s last hope isn’t human.’

Synopsis: In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanised police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.
