THIS MOVIE WILL SWEEP YOU OFF YOUR FEET!
Features actors: Drew Barrymore, Anjelica Huston, Dougray Scott, Patrick Godfrey, Jeroen Krabbe, Megan Dodds, Melanie Lynskey & Richard O'Brian Rating:PG-13 Running time: 121 Min. Drew Barrymore plays Danielle, according to her great-great-great grand-daughter the real inspiration for the story of Cinderella. Just as in the classic fairy tale, Danielle lives with her mean stepmother and stepsisters, after the death of her beloved father. They force her to do all the work. She meets the prince, goes to the ball wearing glass slippers, and runs away before midnight. But there are some big differences. No pumpkin coach, no fairy godmother, and no bibbity-bobbity-boo. This heroine is not meekly obedient. She stays on because she wants to take care of her home and the people who work there, because it makes her feel close to her father, and because she still hopes that somehow she will find approval from the only mother she has ever known. The stepmother, played by Anjelica Houston in her most evil "The Witches" mode, is not going to give it to her. She tells Danielle that she sees her as a pebble in her shoe. All she cares about is making sure that the prince chooses her elder daughter, Marguerite (Megan Dodd), as his bride. She is willing to lie, cheat, and steal to make it happen. Meanwhile, the Prince (Dougray Scott) is not quite Charming. He appears arrogant, but is really just lonely and aimless. His parents want him to marry the princess of Spain to cement a strategic alliance, but he wants to fall in love. He meets Danielle when she's disguised as a courtier to rescue a family servant sold by her stepmother to pay her debts, and he's very taken by Danielle's passion and intellect. The stepmother finds out about their relationship and does her best to thwart it. When the prince finds out that Danielle is not really of noble birth, he's furious at first. But it all ends happily ever after, even without a fairy godmother (though with a little help from Leonardo da Vinci). This is such a great Cinderella movie!Great acting, time setting is in the 16th century France, with great costumes, makes you feel like your in that time frame when watching.Would recommend to rent or buy!Hope this helps you decide.Thanks for reading!Please click YES at the bottom.:)Read full review
This is probably my favorite take on cinderella - It comes with no fancy balls, Glass slipers, and deffinetly there arn't any fairy God mothers here!! Angelica Houston plays the most evil, Evil stepmother in the history of movie making... The only this left is to watch it and see if there Tuely is a happily ever after...
