Storyline

With the sudden death of her loving father, Danielle is made a servant by her new stepmother. She also has two new stepsisters, one quite kind but the other one really horrid. Still, Danielle grows up to be a happy and strong-willed young lady, and one day her path crosses that of handsome Prince Henry, who has troubles of his own at home. Luckily the nice Leonardo da Vinci is on hand to help all round. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

About 24 minutes into the film the Prince finds out that he is speaking with Leonardo Da Vinci. Da Vinci then says "Michelangelo was trapped under a ceiling in Rome, I'm just a second choice". This is in reference to Michelangelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel's Ceiling, which occurred between the years of 1508 and 1512. See more »

Goofs

When Danielle is climbing down and the gypsies are attacking, the color of the sky changes from light blue (on the ground) to dark blue (in the canopy) to light blue (in the canopy). See more »

A modern spin on the fairy tale "Cinderella". When I first went to see this movie in the theatre, I was very skeptical as I'm not a Drew Barrymore fan but she absolutely shines as Danielle and has great chemistry with Dougray Scott as the handsome and funny Prince Henry. I love the scenery and costumes, and all the characters are wickedly funny. The story is very endearing and absorbing as well. Don't miss this movie!
