“Cinderella” is one of the many fairy tales that poses contemporary and timeless situations that can be seen within our lives to this day. A theme within “Cinderella” represents how an individual is able to overcome obstacles and difficult circumstances within their lives that may seem impossible. This theme can be represented in countless modern movies as well, such as “Pretty Woman”, “The King’s Speech”, “I, Tonya”, and more! A characteristic of all of these movies was how there is always an individual that undergoes heartache and faces adversity, however, they remain true to themselves and always get back up. Even within our own individual lives we are faced with challenges everyday, but it only makes us stronger and it’s what makes us appreciate the “happy ending” even more; whether it’s within a fairy tale/ movie, or within our own lives.
