Iain Softley has rarely had the best of screenplays to work with but still his films come together rather well. At best – Inkheart, Backbeat and The Wings of the Dove – his movies can be visually striking, resonant and memorable.
Softley’s own script for Trap For Cinderella was well-liked, making its way onto the Brit List of Blighty’s best unproduced screenplays, so that’s encouraging. This trailer, though, is a touch underwhelming.
But, then again, Tuppence Middleton and Alexandra Roach are both superb, routinely. I continue to look forward to this film keenly.
