“Ella Enchanted” is a movie based on a book of the same name written by Gail Carson. It’s a Cinderella story with a twist. When Ella is born, the fairy Lucinda granted her the gift of obedience. No matter what someone tells her to do, Ella must always obey. This makes life incredibly difficult for her, and she has to go to great lengths to conceal this fact from the people around her, especially Prince Charmont, the man she falls in love with. She’s on a quest to find Lucinda to get her to break the spell of obedience.
I personally love retellings of fairy tales, especially when they have unique twists. I’ve always enjoyed this movie, and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys atypical Cinderella stories.
