Cruella

BRILLIANT. BAD. A LITTLE BIT MAD. 

Ten years after her mother’s death, Estella Miller (Emma Stone) is noticed by a prominent fashion designer (Emma Thompson) who takes her under her wing… but Estella finds a reason to plot revenge. Another attempt by Disney to spin something new out of a familiar story, in this case One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961). Cruella de Vil gets her own background story; Thompson is fine and so are the production design and costumes, but at heart it’s awfully generic, including the choices of pop hits on the soundtrack.

2021-U.S. 134 min. Color. Directed by Craig Gillespie. Production Design: Fiona Crombie. Costume Design: Jenny Beavan. Cast: Emma Stone (Estella Miller), Emma Thompson (Baroness von Hellman), Joel Fry (Jasper Badun), Paul Walter Hauser, Mark Strong, Emily Beecham.

Trivia: Co-executive produced by two Cruellas, Stone and Glenn Close.

Oscar: Best Costume Design. BAFTA: Best Costume Design.
