Buy it... if Patrick Doyle's vintage, whimsical romance of the early 1990's remains your favorite of his output, this Disney remake finally allowing him to explore that genre again with unashamedly fanciful orchestrations and wondrously optimistic melodies.

Avoid it... if you demand resonance in your fairy tales, Doyle's work resembling lighter Joel McNeely and others' occasionally insubstantial fluff for the children's genre.

Cinderella: (Patrick Doyle) The classic tale of "The Little Glass Slipper" told by Charles Perrault as "Cendrillon" and evolved into "Cinderella" through the centuries has inspired countless retellings in a myriad of settings, but on screen, the most famous has remained the 1950 animated Disney musical version. In the 2010's the studio made a concerted effort to concentrate on live-action resurrections of its classic animated films, and 2015's Cinderella follows on the footsteps of 2014's successful remake of Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent. The live-action Disney Cinderella more faithfully followed the original storyline and perspective of the concept, though, and earned over half a billion dollars from theatres filled with enamored girls. Poor Elle is always repressed by her evil step-mother, and the equation is no different here, the hidden princess inevitably, by the force of nature and a little magic, destined to meet her prince and marry him. The roundabout way she gets there remains the focus of the tale, and several notable acting performances, along with a strong presence of music for the live-action version, contributed to its success. Also following in the mould of Maleficent is Patrick Doyle's approach to Cinderella. Film music fans should express significant gratitude to Kenneth Branagh for bringing Doyle along on his venture into mainstream action and romance fare, their early careers dominated by Shakespeare and never reaching this pinnacle of box office success. Doyle, having earned the trust of soundtrack collectors with his several enjoyable scores of the early 1990's, many of them defined by whimsical, English-styled romance, has truly transformed his career in recent years, from Thor, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit to, perhaps more influentially, Brave, all assignments seemingly inconceivable in his career back in the early 2000's. Along this journey, much of that initial English romantic element was necessarily left behind. Unquestionably, Cinderella represents his glorious return to that genre of fluffy fare, and it's certain to enthrall collectors of vintage Doyle music. Like Maleficent, there are a couple of references back to the Mack David, Jerry Livingston, and Al Hoffman songs of the classic Disney film, but this is not a musical overall, and the end title song, "Strong," was primarily the product of Doyle adapting his material from his score into song form.
