Trap For Cinderella review

Iain Softley’s ( Backbeat ) return to Brit-film after US hiccups like K-PAX is welcome, but his stylish yet silly thriller takes too much swallowing to qualify as a happy-ever-after.

Single White Female and Diabolique haunt this second riff on Sébastien Japrisot’s novel (there was a 1965 adap), where Tuppence Middleton’s moneyed hedonist Micky reconstructs her memories after a fire.

As she uncovers a blurry history of jealousy and murder involving doting pal Do (Alexandra Roach), immersive lensing and a solid cast sustain the intrigue until the plot twists hold about as firm as a glass slipper.
