    The Glass Slipper

    ★★★½

    "Nevertheless," it's a nice word. Isn't it pleasant to sit and exchange words with a friend?

    You know Leslie Caron is a good actress because there's a whole sequence where she actually pretends like she needs to be taught how to dance by Michael Wilding.

I was 16 years old, the year 2012. Home in the middle of an early summer Tuesday, scanning the TV channels for something entertaining, I saw it.
