A Classic Tale with a Modern Twist
20 January, 2015
Ella Enchanted stars Anne Hathaway and Hugh Dancy and puts a jolly twist on the classic story of Cinderella. Baby Ella is unfortunately presented with the ‘Gift of Obedience’ by her fairy godmother, Lucinda. As she grows up she has to endure her step mother and step sisters’ taunts and suffers due to her ‘gift’ as she has to do whatever they ask her to do. Her only solace are Mandy, her household fairy and Areida, her best friend. A chance meeting with Prince Char helps Ella to realize that she has to get rid of her ‘gift’ and she embarks on a journey to find her fairy godmother and ask her to reverse her spell. Accompanying her on her journey is Prince Char, a lovable elf named Slannen, and Mandy’s boyfriend turned book, Benny. On the way, Ella also enlightens the plight of the subjects under the rule of Prince Char’s uncle, Sir Edgar, about which Char is not familiar with. Just as Ella resolves to get rid of her ‘gift’, Price Char too opens up to the reality of his Uncle’s deception and vows to realize his true intent. With cute songs and fun moments, Ella Enchanted is a truly delightful movie.
