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 <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Trivia

Although Leonardo da Vinci died in 1519 and Thomas More's book "Utopia" was first published in 1516, Drew Barrymore's character is given the book as a present when she is a child and she meets the character of Leonardo 10 years later. See more »

Goofs

When Rodmilla notices the candlesticks are missing from the dinner table, the candles on the plate are very short. In the next shot, they are much longer. See more »

Quotes

Marguerite: I was not shrill, I was resonant. A courtier knows the difference.
Baroness Rodmilla De Ghent: I very much doubt your style of resonance would be permitted in the royal court.
Marguerite: I'm not going to the Royal Court, am I, Mother? No one is, except some Spanish pig they have the nerve to call a princess.

THE MOST ROMANTIC MOVIE :o)
4 July 2004 | by (NEW YORK CITY) – See all my reviews

I just love it from the first time I saw Ever After. I have always been very romantic on where I have also dream of a prince and still waiting for one. Isn't great to love someone with out boundaries? We all look for a twin soul who which you would like to share the real you with one another. It is just a great movie. I believe that Drew Barrymore gave life to that love we all would like to feel for one day for someone an impossible love combined with pain and real truth of the heart. All of our realities we live through romantic movies are created by dreams and hopes but we can make it happen by just letting go and accepting one another in our future dreams. Barrymore has a great personality and sense of humor I hope the best for her and she will go far now because she already made her dreams come truth. now is our turn to make ours come truth :O)
