News & Interviews for Ever After: A Cinderella Story
Critic Reviews for Ever After: A Cinderella Story
Drew Barrymore plays the complicated belle of the climactic ball and develops a convincing intellectually based friendship with the prince.
The script by Susannah Grant, Rick Parks and director Andy Tennant successfully maintains the story's period trappings while introducing a heroine with modern resonance.
Given that this is adolescent romance, never straying far from traditional stereotypes, its 'progressive' feel-good aura is mainly down to Barrymore, whose limitations are only exposed in big love scenes.
Though director Andy Tennant was enthusiastic about putting this kind of spin on Cinderella, his touch turns out to be counterproductive.
'Ever After' presents a plucky Cinderella for today's women and beyond.
Audience Reviews for Ever After: A Cinderella Story
Charming and realistic adaptation. Drew Barrymore is great in this one.
I loved this movie when I was younger. It's a great Cinderella story, full of wonder, magic, and romance. The costumes and settings are beautiful. The story is good, and so is the acting. I recommend it.
Often lacks the plausibility and seriousness that the premise suggests but the chemistry between Barrymore and Scott just shines with an incredibly well written script. Ultimately it wins us over with it's unrelenting charm and wit.
Where Disney's version relied on actual magic and animated impossibilities, the magic in this film comes from it's fun, emotion and uplifting qualities.
In the end it's a harmless romance that works through n' through despite the fact that many feel it's merely a re-telling. A well made chick-flick.
