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

At one point Queen Marie (Judy Parfitt) tells Henry (Dougray Scott) to choose a wife wisely, because "divorce is only something they do in England." This is obviously a reference to the infamous Henry VIII of England, who caused an immense scandal when he divorced Catherine of Aragon for Anne Boleyn in the early 16th century. See more »

Goofs

When Prince Henry and the gypsy have their sword fight, the gypsy that punches Prince Henry draws his sword. In the next shot (a one-shot of the gypsy) it is still sheathed but in the subsequent two-shot the gypsy's sword is drawn again. See more »

Quotes

Pierre Le Pieu: I may be twice your age, child, but I'm well endowed.
[Danielle turns away to another basket]
Pierre Le Pieu: As evidenced by my estate, I've always had a soft spot for the less fortunate. You need a wealthy benefactor - and I need a young lady with spirit.
Danielle: [looks up and smiles] Prunes?

Kick-Ass Cinderella
29 April 2000 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Cinderella kicks butt in this feminist retelling of the classic fairy tale. Orphaned as a young girl, Danielle (Cinderella) is raised by her evil stepmother and two stepsisters in rural 16th century France. After a few chance encounters with the crown prince (who falls in love with her), Danielle finds herself on a collision course with her family who have royal designs of their own. Shot on location in France, the dialogue often veers very close to preachy, but knows when to cut the politics and return to the story. And a good story it is, well acted by Drew Barrymore as Danielle, and Angelica Huston as the wicked stepmother. This one is worth the rental.
