Ever After: a Cinderella Story

Andy Tennant (1998)

PG Certificate


Our Score
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.


A girl grows up in 16th-century Europe under the iron fist of her stepmother, until the love of handsome Prince Henry offers a glimmer of hope. Unfortunately, the royal gent has worries of his own in the shape of an arranged marriage. Luckily, Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci is on hand to play fairy godfather and bring the pair together. Romantic drama, starring Drew Barrymore, Anjelica Huston, Dougray Scott and Timothy West.
