Summary: Andy Tennant directed this Cinderella variant. 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. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

There isn't much to improve upon when dealing with a classic fairy tale, but surprisingly, this charming (if slightly overlong) update of the Cinderella story has a good deal to offer even those completely familiar with its tried and true yarn. Beautifully photographed in Super-35 on location in France, with pitch-perfect production design, Ever After succeeds in creating something with a modern bent while still retaining the core of integrity that makes its story continue to resonate. Drew Barrymore is far too contemporary for the lead role, but her effortless charisma carries the film regardless, and the supporting cast is expertly chosen, with a suitably dashing Dougray Scott and wonderfully sneer-worthy Anjelica Huston standing out among many apt performances. The movie doesn't fully capitalize on its strengths, and Andy Tennant's direction is suitable but unsurprising; still, the film is classy, straightforward entertainment and designed to please. Its video version has been rated PG, seemingly with a few trims to make it even more family friendly. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi
