Product Description

Amazon.ca

Take away the Fairy Godmother, and what have you got left from the Cinderella fable? The story of a girl for whom a bad stroke of luck is no match for her internal strength and purity of heart. Drew Barrymore plays Cinderella's alleged inspiration, Danielle, in this romantic drama that purports to tell the "facts" behind the Grimm brothers' story. One of three daughters of a man (Jeroen Krabbé) who dies and leaves her fate in the hands of a conniving stepmother (Anjelica Huston), Danielle is cast into the lowly role of a servant. Meanwhile, her sisters are evaluated as possible mates for a French prince (Dougray Scott), but he's far more intrigued with Danielle's intelligence and beauty--not to mention her way with a sword and fist. Directed by Andy Tennant (who directed Barrymore in TV's The Amy Fisher Story), Ever After has that rare ability to win the heart and mind of a viewer simply by being committed to its own innocence, particularly where Barrymore's luminous performance is concerned. A contemporary take on an old, virtually forgotten Hollywood convention--the costume adventure with middling artistic ambition but real audience appeal--Ever After is a surprisingly delightful film. --Tom Keogh

Special Features

Is Ever After good for kids? Absolutely. The film was rated PG-13 by the MPAA for "momentary strong language." This video release has deleted the offending language (which was hardly noticeable) and has been rated PG. Other scenes include Cinderella recovering from a lashing and some swordplay. Five- and six-year-olds who have enjoyed similar movies should enjoy this fare, especially with such a modern role model. --Doug Thomas

At first when I saw they were making this movie I was intrigued, but also skeptical, about this new twist on Perrault's Cinderella, this time starring Drew Barrymore. Well, Cinderella is my second favourite fairy tale, so I should probably force myself to sit through it for that reason alone. Barrymore's also not that bad of an actress, not the best, but hey not the worst. Then I notice Anjelica Huston is in it also, and hey I really like her so why not go and see it?
Well eventually I completely forgot about the movie, never did get around to seeing it in theatres. Then while surfing through the channels on my TV I see a commercial for the movie being shown on some station and I'm intrigued all over again. So I tune in to see the movie, and wow, I was not expecting this movie to be as great as it was.
This is not Disney's version of Cinderella, not by a long shot, so if that's what you're looking for in your tale of Cinderella I suggest you search elsewhere. Instead of the pixie dust and fairy tails you get the legend of Cinderella, the supposedly true story which the fairy tales were later based off of. The movie opens with the brothers Grimm arriving at a castle in France invited there by an again woman who wishes to tell them the true story of Cinderella without the magical pumpkins or a faery godmother. I'll spare you all the details of the film which every other reviewer has already gone through. I will however tell you that the performance is average from Drew Barrymore, no fireworks with her acting here, just the way she usually is, which isn't that bad but she's not going to be winning an Oscar anytime soon I promise you that.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of seeing one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. I am speaking of Ever After starring Drew Barrymore and Angelica Huston. This is a Cinderella story with a bit of a twist.
The film opens with an ageing Princess being visited by to two gentlemen who turn out to be the Brothers Grimm. She compliments them on their work and mentions her fascination with the tale of the little cinder girl. While the brothers joke about pumpkins and fairy godmothers the princess reveals the glass slipper and offers to tell them the true tale.
Danielle gains a step-mother and two step-sisters when her father marries a Countess. Soon she runs into the Prince. She thinks he is a thief and pelts him with apples. When she realizes her mistake she offers up her life. But the Prince in on the run so he rewards her with gold. Danielle uses the gold to buy back the husband of one of the servants. But to do so she must impersonate a courtier and runs into the Prince again. She manages to sneak away but only after giving her mother's name as her own.
The stage is now set. The Prince does not want to marry the Spanish Princess his father has arranged for and seeks out Danielle. Under the pretense that she is a courtier they spend time together and a romance blossoms. The Prince is all set to announce his engagement (made at midnight at a ball) to Danielle but her step-mother reveals her base heritage and the Prince becomes angry. But in the end everything works out and the scene returns to the Brothers Grimm and Danielle's great-granddaughter.
There are no elements of the fantastic in this tale. No magic of fairies. Instead an attempt is made to place the tale firmly into history.

I've said in other reviews i've done, Drew Barrymore is my all-time favorite actress. She portrays a sweetness and honesty to her characters. She does great in Romantic movies and this is my favorite romance movie she's done even though I also love Mad Love, The Wedding Singer, and Never Been Kissed. This is my all-time favorite version of Cinderella I think it's one of the few times where a different version than the original was 10 times better. My fasination with the story of Cinderella really started with this there is so much they did that made the movie better than the original did not.
Drew Barrymore plays Danielle Debaberake (sp?) AKA Cinderella. Her mother died when she was a baby and for 8 years it was just her loving father and her. That is until he remarried and suddenly Danielle is left to get used to having a stepmother and two stepsisters around her age. Well 5 min. within the movie her her father dies and her stepmother makes her a servant and constantly verbally abuses her. When Cinderella is 18 is when Drew comes into the picture and she plays a very independent wise spunky and beautiful Cinderella.
Anjelica Houston is priceless as the wicked stepmother and adds so much to the sterotype character. Anjelica while playing a mean and self-centered stepmother also adds a tiny touch of tenderness and feelings to the character the main scene you can see this is when Danielle is brushing her hair and the stepmother talks to her. Anjelica is such a classy graceful actress and I can't imagine anyone playing the stepmother better. She is almost worth watching this movie by herself.
Dougory Scott plays the prince of france Henry he is very easy on the eyes and is believeable as a prince.
