Ella Enchanted

[cert PG, 96 mins]

It all begins when Ella of Frell is given a fairy's "gift"
at birth - the gift of perfect obedience. Forced to
do anything she is commanded - no matter how
silly or dangerous - Ella's life hardly seems to be in
her own control. Things only get worse when Ella's
father remarries, bringing into her life a
stepmother, the dastardly Dame Olga , and two
sinister stepsisters. Now, Ella is newly determined to
gain her independence and break free of the spell
that binds her once and for all. She sets off on a
quest of discovery where she finds a fellow traveler
in a go-getting Elf - to the King's spectacular
castle. Along the way she crosses paths with the
idolized Prince Char only to turn the tables on fairy
tale history and rescue him with true love. But most
of all, Ella will discover her own power to fight for
what's in her heart.
