Ever After: A Cinderella Story
This Cinderella story stars Barrymore as the girl who fits the proverbial glass slipper. A period piece with a modern-day sensibility, Tennant's interpretation has lots of spunk but a sloppy storyline. Still, the production is gorgeous and Barrymore is enchanting. Up-and-comer Dougray Scott is the oh-so-progressive Prince Charming who loves Cinderella for her beauty and her brains. No pumpkins or mice in this version, but there are cruel stepsisters (Dodds and Lynsky), an evil stepmother (Huston), and – in an clever twist — Leonardo da Vinci (Godfrey) as the fairy godfather.
