Anne Hathaway truly is enchanting as Ella, the girl who has been gifted with what is actually a curse of having to follow any and all commands. Anne gets to do some wonderful physical comedy when others force her into immediate compliance, often unwittingly. And for the male lead, you couldn't ask for a better Prince Charmont, played to perfection by Hugh Dancy. It's these two, plus a good supporting cast that really make the movie work in spite of some uneven story telling and production values.
There were NO special features in my Blu-Ray package. There wasn't even a proper menu or introduction page. The movie just starts playing and when it finishes, it just loops back to the beginning. Hopefully an improved package will be released.
Rated PG (USA & UK), G in Canada. Due to this film's inconsistent tone, there are actually some moments that some kids have difficulty with. There is one scene where it becomes quite dramatic and Anne plays her sorrow and conflict with such verve and conviction that a few kids would completely freak out in the theater, and in some cases have to leave.
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 ›

I love 'fairy-tales'. They bring you into a world where everything is possible. A bit 'childish' for an adult, but kids, specially little girls would LOVE IT! Read morePublished 14 months ago by Ella1
