Storyline

Elle wants to be a singer/songwriter, but her dreams are cut short by the sudden death of her parents. She moves in with her adoptive uncle, who runs a small independent record label whose biggest act, Sensation, is also Elle's biggest pain. The pop music environment at the label, very different than the country roots she is used to, adds to Elle's feelings of loss and frustration, and her misplaced guilt, which is caused by the fact that her parents had been en route to her performance at the time of her death. But when she meets Ty Parker, a famous pop singer with a passion for "real" music, her repressed ambition is released through a revitalized interest in singing and songwriting. Written by Anonymous

Very Disappointing
9 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I could not even get to the middle of this movie. After 20 minutes, I had to leave. It was a very predictable movie, adding no originality nor spice to Cinderella. There was no substance to this movie. It also moved at a really odd pace. I felt that they didn't need to spend so much time on Sterling Knight's character's meeting with his manager and that they should have spent that time going over the protagonist's background even more. Even high school plays are better than this "movie".

I was so disappointed because it looked so adorable! Not to mention that there was an actress in it that wasn't stick thin or Hollywood pretty. I was hoping that she would be a good role model or example to girls but... yeah, that ship sailed.

Overall, don't waste your time watching it.
