Ever After: A Cinderella Story
A modern twist on the classic Cinderella fairytale, Ever After follows our hapless heroine Danielle (Drew Barrymore) and her accidental ascent into royalty. Danielle’s wit and kind heart catches the attention of Prince Henry (Dougray Scott) of France all the while making her stepfamily wildly jealous. Ephemeral, yet affective reflections on wealth and class in feudal society pepper the film, lending Danielle and Henry’s love story a stronger backbone. Although a happy ending is assured, filmmaker Andy Tennant keeps Ever After exciting until the very end.
Directed by Andy Tennant, 1998, 121 minutes, PG-13.
