An intriguing trailer for Trap For Cinderella, a drama from writer-director Iain Softley (K-Pax, The Skeleton Key, Inkheart).

A young girl suffering from amnesia after surviving a house fire that takes her childhood friend’s life, begins a tormented road to recovery. Many have been comparing the style of this film to Black Swan, which can only be a good thing.
TRAP FOR CINDERELLA is a contemporary psychological thriller. A beach house on the French Riviera is gutted by fire. Trapped inside are two young women – childhood friends who have been reunited after 10 years. One is rich and the other poor. Only one of them survives, injured beyond recognition and in a state of total amnesia. Who is she, the heiress or her penniless friend? A killer, or an intended victim?
