In this contemporary retelling of the Cinderella story, a feisty 18-year-old Italian-American New Yorker named Cindy is sent off to Rome with her irascible stepmother and vain stepsisters. On the way, she meets, and falls in love with, globetrotting bagpacker Mizio, who eventually turns out to be of Italian nobility. There's a fairy stand-in in the form of a spaced-out astrologer, a dance, and she even loses a shoe at one point. Care to venture a guess how it all turns out? Written by

I've only seen this movie about 3 times and I've always thought that the music in the movie was awesome. Bonnie Bianco has one of the best voices I've heard and would love to get hold of the sound track, but I am more interested in finding the movie. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find the movie anywhere, so if anyone can find a copy, please let me know as I would like to purchase it.
