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

Dull, predictable and pretty much disappointing.
5 June 2011 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry but for me, this movie was just plain horrible. I was half expecting another one of those cute Cinderella flicks. But I was in for a surprise. The acting was not even close to mediocre.. it was bland, forced, weak and the characters seem so fake. The lead actress just sucked; I don't know, but her whole character seemed to me as if she was a failed Taylor Swift clone. Some of the actors weren't as bad as the lead but others had it even worse.

Anyways, the movie was dull, predictable and cheesy. The script was also horrible and cringe-worthy. And if it weren't for my sister, I wouldn't have sat through even half of the movie.

I'm sorry if I seem a tad bit harsh on my wordings but it irks me that the movie could've been a whole lot better if they just put more effort into it. Elle: A Modern Cinderella Tale had potential to be an "okay" movie but it was just very disappointing.
