Storyline

A few years after their graduation from Princeton, Louis Baxter, who retired having sold his dot.com business, takes in college-buddy William, who desperately nears the end of his trust fund after several fully failed career-attempts. Louis takes William along to L.A.'s weirdest society event, the annual endangered animals benefit. This year, to raise more money she auctions a single dinner, which William bids his last capital on. He wins, according to Louis a shrewd business networking opportunity. But he's love-spelled by Ithaca, while she believes him to be the seeker, a long-awaited savior for the castle's most secret reality. Written by KGF Vissers

Older tweens and fantasy fans will enjoy this made-for-television film
28 February 2012 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

William (Kip Pardue) arrives at the home of a west coast friend to couch surf for awhile. His last four jobs have not worked out and, luckily for him, his married pal and his very pregnant wife are more than happy to have him as their guest. Almost immediately, William is invited to attend a special fund raising ball at a nearby castle's grounds. Living at the castle is eccentric Princess Ithaca (Nora Zehetner) who, almost 25, has never had a date and spends most days at home, taking care of the gardens and animals that live on her property. Nevertheless, when the Princess appears, William notes her beauty. It seems the fund raising effort includes an auction for the "last dance" with Ithaca and a lunch date soon after. As the bidding goes higher, William calls out 50 grand! Its his inheritance and his only money. Joy of joy, he wins! Soon, the two are having their dance and making lunch plans. But, there is quite a mystery afoot as something Will said was a code for Ithaca to proclaim him her "searcher". What is that? Glimpses of mythical beings, from mermaids to werewolves to elves, also appear on the grounds of the castle, scaring and confusing Will. Is Ithaca truly interested in him romantically or is William about to be entangled in something more dangerous? This is quite a lovely film for young girls and ladies of all ages. Fantasy fans will enjoy it as well. Pardue and Zehetner make an attractive duo while the secondary cast supports them nicely. Naturally, the sets, costumes, and effects are quite good, as is the direction. As for the script, is has some hard-to-believe moments and far-fetched elements but, well, it is a fantasy, no? Thus, pick out Princess for the crew in the weeks ahead.
