After Ella is born she is given a gift by her eccentric Fairy Godmother Lucinda so that she will always be obedient. Although this is ok when she is child, when she grows up her "gift", which is really a curse, comes to the attention of people who use it for evil intent. This is a great story to teach idioms and figurative language to kids, as Ella takes so many of these literally leading to funny situations. Ella's mother dies and her father remarries a woman with you guessed it...two daughters.
All the girls in the kingdom are in love with Prince Char and even have a fan club. When he meets Ella and then saves her life, he doesn't know what to make of the fact that Ella is not as enamoured as the other girls. Instead she sees what is wrong with the kingdom and the Elfin Restrictions put in place by his evil uncle Edgar who has taken over the throne. She also feels that Char as the heir to the throne should do something about this unfairness. Despite her original distain for the prince, Ella slowly begins to fall in love with Prince Char.Read more ›
Ella sets out on her long journey in the days preceding the coronation of Prince Char (Hugh Dancy). Char is pretty much the Elvis of the realm, with young ladies in waiting breaking out into hysterics whenever he appears and, more often than not, chasing him down like hounds after a fox.Read more ›
The main character in this film is Ella of Krell (Anne Hathaway), a teenager who was given a strange "gift" by her eccentric fairy godmother (played by Vivica A. Fox) when she was born. That gift is nothing less that the "gift of obedience": everything that she is ordered to do, she automatically does. Her "gift" doesn't make life too difficult for Ella at the beginning, as only her mother and her aunt (Minnie Driver) know about it. Of course, Ella is annoyed by the fact that she always has to do what they order (and yes, that includes homework and music lessons), but they never ask her to do nothing bad.
Unfortunately, Ella's life takes a turn for the worse when her mother dies and her father Patrick Bergin) must remarry for money. She ends up having a stereotypical hateful stepmother, and stepsisters from hell. One of her stepsisters, Hattie (Lucy Punch), discovers Ella's secret, and makes more or less a slave of her. That impossible situation prompts Ella to start a quest in search of her fairy godmother, the only one who can remove her "gift" from her.
If you watch this movie, you will get lots of adventure and action, along with some interesting characters.Read more ›
