Ella lives in a magical world in which each child, at the moment of their birth, is given a virtuous "gift" from a fairy godmother. Ella's so-called gift, however, is obedience. This birthright proves itself to be quite the curse once Ella finds herself in the hands of several unscrupulous characters whom she quite literally cannot disobey. Determined to gain control of her life and decisions, Ella sets off on a journey to find her fairy godmother who she hopes will lift the curse. The path, however, isn't easy -- Ella must outwit a slew of unpleasant obstacles including ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, elves and Prince Charmont's evil uncle, who wants to take over the crown and rule the kingdom.

There was a lot of jumping around through flashbacks and I wasn't always clear on what was past and what was present. Graham Greene was great, but many of the actors in minor supporting roles seemed like they had very little acting experience/talent.

Leo L (de) wrote: Great movie! This is definitely one of my all time favorites in the supernatural suspense collection. Pierce Brosnan truly shines in this, and the story plot is highly intriguing. Brosnan is a French cultural anthropologist who is studying the various patterns of nomadic people in the world. In the completion of his studies and move to California, he discovers and develops a current interest in a group of outsiders in L.A. He sees resemblance of nomadic traits in the lifestyle patterns of this wily group. The closest connection that he compares it to within his studies is that of the Inuit people. His interest begins to take toll as he is welcomed by the group. As he tries to quietly walk away, it brings further tension from the group and this final realization brings his death. In the last moment of dying, it is a connection with an E.R. nurse that allows us to see the remaining days of what happened to him in memories, nightmares, and haunting thoughts. This movie reflects much of Native American aspects in connection with life, death, and the soul and spirit of a human body. Love this movie. It's quite interesting to see Adam Ant in this movie, especially as the leader of the group of outsiders. Lesley-Anne Down is absolutely fantastic in this movie. Definitely worth seeing!
