Trap For Cinderella


A young girl rebuilds her life after a bout of amnesia

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

Single White Female and Diaboliquehaunt 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.
