Musical: Having been subjugated into servitude by her stepmother, a headstrong young woman gets a second chance at life when she meets a Prince whose father is demanding that he find a bride.

Ella (CAMILA CABELLO) is a young and headstrong woman who dreams of opening a dress shop. Unfortunately, in the kingdom where she lives, no woman owns a business. To make matters worse, with her father no longer around, Ella's stepmother, Vivian (IDINA MENZEL), makes her serve her and her two daughters, Malvolia (MADDIE BAILLIQ) and Narissa (CHARLOTTE SPENCER) who refer to her as Cinderella, what with Ella being forced to live in the basement.

With her only friends being three mice, James (voice of JAMES CORDEN), John (voice of JAMES ACASTER), and Romesh (voice of ROMESH RANGANATHAN), Ella keeps designing and making dresses while Vivian hopes that some rich man, such as Thomas Cecil (ROB BECKETT), might take one of her daughters off her hands.

Meanwhile, Prince Robert (NICHOLAS GALITZINE) -- while having a close relationship with his mother, Queen Beatrice (MINNIE DRIVER), and sister, Princess Gwen (TALLULAH GREIVE) -- must contend with his father, King Rowan (PIERCE BROSNAN), demanding that he act more kingly and find himself a woman to marry and be his queen.

He doesn't think much of loveless arranged marriages, and thus is smitten with Ella when he sees her from a distance and notes her independent nature. Dressing down like a commoner so that he can't be recognized, he finds Ella on the street and invites her to the ball that his father is throwing for him in hopes of him finding a bride there.

When Vivian refuses to allow Ella to attend, she gets a lucky break when a recently transformed butterfly turns into her Fabulous Godmother (BILLY PORTER) and casts a spell that will allow her to attend with only Prince Robert being able to recognize her.

But the spell is only good until midnight when Ella will return to her old self and the three mice who've been turned into her human assistants will return to rodent form. With time running out, Ella and Prince Robert must decide what's right for themselves.

If they're fans of anyone in the cast, movie musicals, or the Cinderella story, they just might.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
