Estella is a young woman who has always had a knack for fashion. When she meets the famous Baroness, she begins to hone her designing skills in order to make a name for herself. Her life takes a remarkable turn when she finds out that her boss is connected to a tragedy that took place in her past. This leads to her unleashing her true self, the one who has always lurked deep down within.
Cruella is a delightful crime comedy that captures the wacky soul of a determined woman who walks the thin line between madness and genius.
Emma Stone exudes the craziness associated with the character first played by Glenn Close years ago. Her performance as the titular character is amazing, matched only by the seasoned acting of Emma Thompson as the antagonist.
Stone plays Estella, a girl whose tragic past leads her to the big city where a chance meeting with the devious and powerful Baroness (Thompson) sets her on the path to making her dreams come true.
When the protagonist discovers that her boss was responsible for the demise of a loved one years ago, she hatches a plot to exact her own form of revenge, enlisting the help of her three goons.
In order to strip the Baroness of everything she holds dear, Estella will have to go, giving way for the unhinged Cruella to take over.
Everything about this film is outlandish, outrageous, and extraordinary. The plot is fast-paced and the two leads are compelling in their roles.
Stone is riveting and Thompson is ravishingly delectable. Both of them take Disney's latest film to great heights and I couldn't help but smile throughout.
The cinematography is awesome, the music phenomenal, the set pieces gorgeous, and the costumes and makeup out of this world.
Cruella is a feast for the eyes and one of Disney's best films in recent years.
