Enormously good fun and wickedly stylish in every way, the live-action feature Cruella brings the legendary Disney villain to life in an entirely new light.
Set during the 1970s punk revolution in London, the story follows the clever and creative Estella (Emma Stone) who is determined to become a successful fashion designer. Working late one night at Liberty department store, she can’t help but inject her anarchic spirit into the conservative window display.
Suddenly, her flair for fashion catches the eye of devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute fashion legend, Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson). But as they begin working together, their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent ‘Cruella’.
Energetically directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya), with spectacular costume design by Oscar-winning Jenny Beavan (Mad Max: Fury Road), Cruella showcases two performers at the very top of their game in a dazzling display of outlandish fashion, hair and make-up.
