Isn't it what most people dream of? Prospering despite the difficulties in their lives? Finding their true love and being with him/her despite the odds?
This movie is most definitely not a retelling of the Cinderella story. It has aspects of that, the basic plotline, but a twist all its own. Gone is the pumpkin and the rats into footmen. Gone are the ugly stepsisters, the two equally horrid. No, in this one there is naturally one horrid stepsister, but the other is quite lovable. Dougray Scott is marvelously funny in his role as a Prince trying to find his way, and Angelica Huston is a brilliant evil stepmother, and Drew Barrymore makes a stunning Danielle... With other quirky characters thrown in along the way. Gustave, DaVinci, even the King and Queen are given personalities. The detail is incredible, the costumes gorgeous, and the dialogue enrapturing. This movie is counted among my most favorites, and I highly recommend it to any with a passion for romance.
By all rights a film based on the story of "Cinderella" should not be a favorite of 50-something grandparents. But it is. Drew Barrymore is just perfect as the strong-willed stepchild trying to bear up to the mistreatment of her wicked stepmom, played by Angelica Huston. Whereas the typical Cinderalla stories depend on magic - the glass slipper and the pumpkin, etc - this version is based solidly in reality, and it works very well. Dougray Scott is fine as the Prince looking in the kingdom for a bride. This story is not historically correct, but it is a movie, isn't it. A clever use of da Vinci, with his inventions.
I never thought Angelica Huston was particularly attractive, and here she is perfect as the wicked stepmom. Jeroen Krabbe' is well-cast as the dad who dies right after the wedding. The script and acting work very well, the scenery and photography are beautiful, and the product is an overall fine movie, I rate it "8" of 10.
