Storyline Heading

Danielle, a resourceful and smart young woman, is forced into servitude by her scheming stepmother, Rodmilla. After meeting a prince, Danielle convincingly pretends to be a member of the upper class. As the lovestruck prince tries to court the elusive "noblewoman," Rodmilla connives to marry off another daughter to the prince. But Danielle gets some help from an unexpected source.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic - Based on the classic fairy tale "Cinderella", EVER AFTER is more of a love story than an adventure, so it's more likely to appeal to girls than boys. Nevertheless, the film is well written and nicely acted, and, because it's low on profanity, violence, and sex, it makes for the perfect family film.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
Movies like Ever After, if fashioned with little skill, become curiosities for pre-teen girls looking for a summer afternoon at the movies. However, director Andy Tennant takes this familiar material and crafts a charming, captivating motion picture. He gives the villains a few human qualities, but still manages to make them despicable enough that we feel justified in cheering when they receive their comeuppance. The all-important romance is nicely-developed. Lead characters Danielle and Henry are clearly fated to be together, but they have to overcome a number of obstacles along the way. Of course, everything turns out "happily ever after" (hence, the title), but, as in all romances, ur enjoyment lies in observing the games played by the two smitten protagonists en route to that ending.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

A unique 16th century woman, Danielle possesses a love of books, and can easily quote from Sir Thomas More's Utopia. An intriguing mix of tomboyish athleticism and physical beauty, she has more than enough charm to capture the heart of a prince ... after beaning him with an apple.

This spirited "Cinderella" is certainly no victim - against all odds, she stands up against a forceful and scheming stepmother, while honoring her late and beloved father.

With her keen intelligence and independence, Danielle definitely is not waiting around for the prince to rescue her; in fact, she often comes to his aid, offering him guidance, and even saving the prince's life by carrying him on her back.

When Danielle does receive help, it comes not from a "fairy godmother," but from one of history's most renowned figures, Leonardo da Vinci. And, while she does don a gorgeous pair of glass slippers, the words "magic pumpkin" are not in her vocabulary.

This is not your grandmother's Cinderella.
