Storyline

With the sudden death of her loving father, Danielle is made a servant by her new stepmother. She also has two new stepsisters, one quite kind but the other one really horrid. Still, Danielle grows up to be a happy and strong-willed young lady, and one day her path crosses that of handsome Prince Henry, who has troubles of his own at home. Luckily the nice Leonardo da Vinci is on hand to help all round. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Goofs

Throughout the film, Leonardo da Vinci is referred to as "Signor da Vinci," and "da Vinci." While referring to the artist as "da Vinci" has become acceptable in modern vernacular, the term means "From Vinci," and is not a surname. Da Vinci would not have been used alone to refer to Leonardo during his lifetime; he would have been called simply "Leonardo" or "Leonardo da Vinci." See more »

Gustav: And I suppose if you saw him again, you'd simply...
Danielle: I would walk right up to him and say, 'Your Highness, my family is your family, please take them away!'
Gustav: Good! Because here's your big chance, he's headed this way.

Isn't it what most people dream of? Prospering despite the difficulties in their lives? Finding their true love and being with him/her despite the odds?

This movie is most definitely not a retelling of the Cinderella story. It has aspects of that, the basic plotline, but a twist all its own. Gone is the pumpkin and the rats into footmen. Gone are the ugly stepsisters, the two equally horrid. No, in this one there is naturally one horrid stepsister, but the other is quite lovable. Dougray Scott is marvelously funny in his role as a Prince trying to find his way, and Angelica Huston is a brilliant evil stepmother, and Drew Barrymore makes a stunning Danielle... With other quirky characters thrown in along the way. Gustave, DaVinci, even the King and Queen are given personalities. The detail is incredible, the costumes gorgeous, and the dialogue enrapturing. This movie is counted among my most favorites, and I highly recommend it to any with a passion for romance.
