The gestures, as well as the physical attitudes and costume detailing, echo this. Guided by the memory of her late mother, Cinderella is a forsaken young woman who aspires to love. The roles of the wicked stepmother and mercurial stepsisters are comically danced by men, the fairy godmother has become a ghost-mother and the prince is held captive by the social conventions of his class. Over and above its love story, Cinderella examines the inner transfiguration of its characters in a world searching for meaning, and celebrates the triumph of authenticity over the superficial.
