Ever After: a Cinderella Story
Film Review

4 out of 5

Director Andy Tennant brings new freshness and vitality to the Cinderella story in this delightful reworking that treats the age-old glass slipper legend as if it were hard historical fact. All the pantomime sorcery and comical sidekicks have been jettisoned, and that means the romance between Drew Barrymore's feisty servant girl and Dougray Scott's handsome prince can shine even brighter. Anjelica Huston re-interprets the evil stepmother role with deft assurance, and Leonardo da Vinci (played by Patrick Godfrey) makes a surprising fairy godmother figure. A handsomely mounted epic with lots of glamour and a fabulous grand ball.

Plot Summary

Romantic fantasy based on the fairy tale, starring Drew Barrymore, Anjelica Huston and Dougray Scott. Since the death of her father eight years earlier, Danielle has been treated as a servant by her stepmother Baroness Rodmilla. But could an encounter with the dashing Prince Henry change Danielle's life for ever?
