Overview

Ever After

Andy Tennant directs Ever After, a period romance that reimagines the Cinderella legend with several fresh twists. The Brothers Grimm arrive at the home of a wealthy Grande Dame (Jeanne Moreau) who speaks of the many legends surrounding the fable of the cinder girl before telling the "true" story of her ancestor. In flashback, the story then focuses on eight-year-old Danielle, daughter of a wealthy widower, a 16th-century landowner. After returning to France with his new wife Rodmilla (Anjelica Huston) and her two daughters, he dies of a heart attack. Ten years later, Danielle (Drew Barrymore) is now treated as a servant by the trio. Fortunately, she has an encounter with Prince Henry (Dougray Scott), who is fleeing an arranged marriage. Later, when Danielle poses as a Lady, the Prince takes an interest in her. Inventor-artist Leonardo da Vinci (Patrick Godfrey), accepting the French court's patronage, offers advice to Prince Henry on matters of the heart. George Fenton's music adds an accompaniment to the lush look of this period romance.

I teach 8th ngrade French, so Ever After, shown in French with English subtitles, is a perfect choice for my students. It's set in 16th century France with some beautiful chateaux in evidence. Not only do the girls love it, but the boys can identify with the prince, with Leonardo DaVinci and with the strong character of Danielle. I, too, have no problem showing this film to 13 and 14 year olds. There is maybe one scene that is at all iffy (with M. LePieu), but it comes and goes quickly and it shows the strength and independence of the heroine. This movie is at the top of my list for adolescents as well as adults.

I have watched this movie many times. I have it in the DVD player in my sewing room and play it a lot. The music is nice, the story gives a little twist now and then to the old favorite. Any age would love this story.

Ever After is better than other movies. Drew Barrymore is the best actress ever. She is a real Cinderella. I saw Ever After almost 20 times and I will see it again. Yesterday I saw Ever After three times and I want to see it again. See this movie I know that you will enjoy it.

Drew Barrymore is definitely not your typical Cinderella with the blonde hair, blue eyes and sweet demeanor. The Disney classic is a great fairy tale, but I would always get upset at Cinderella's meekness. Danielle is certainly nothing like her, I'm happy to say! This movie had such incredibly funny moments. Leonardo Da Vinci displays an unexpected comic genius. The scene where the prince and Danielle encounter the gypsy is just classic. It's a fairy tale for grown-ups!

This movie was great. When my friend first recommended it to me I asked her what itwas about once she told me it was about Cindrella I told her I would not watch it. But then she invited me to her house and I was forced to watch it in order to not offend her. After wathing the movie once I fell in love with it. This movie has everything love, hate, deception, betrayal, and humor. This movie is defenatliy something to wactch. Even y boyfriend loved it! So buy it now I promise you won't regret it!

I think this movie is so cute. I believe it is a movie you'll love and watch over and over again. It shows dreams really can come true and that love doesn't have a status.

This movie made me so happy, it was a time honored tale with a twist. Young girls should watch this movie especially! This movie has something for everyone, whether it be sword fights, or the romance between Dougray Scott anbd Drew Barrymore! I think that Dougray was perfect for the role, as well as Drew! I hope that more flims come out like this, violence,profanity and sex are not the only ways to have a great movie! Although Dougray's crouth are was a tempting to stare at! Get the soundtrack, it rocks!

Ever After is a truly beautiful and finally triumphant love story,Full of adventure,romance and wit.It is set in 16 century France and the story revolves around Danielle who after her father passed away when she was eight,was treated like a servant by her evil and scheming stepmother.She also has two step sisters,one's in league with the stepmother to get the prince but the other helps Danielle as much as she can.Despite all this this,Danielle still manages to work miracles to everyone around her even the crown prince of France,Eventually he falls for her....But complications arise.

This movie is awesome! It just makes me feel good; like one person can make a difference: in her own life, in someone's else's life, in the world. I love love stories, and happy endings.

This is one of my favorite movies. I love the retelling of Cinderella, and I think Drew Barrymore does an excellent job. It's a good movie to lose yourself in :)
