Ever After

(I think this is one of the
most gorgeous dresses I've ever seen in
cinematic history... so pretty!)
"My great-grandmothers portrait hung in the University up until the Revolution. By then, the truth of their romance had been reduced to a simple fairytale. And, while Cinderella and her prince live happily ever after, the point, gentlemen, is that they lived." ~Ever After

I like the idea of a Cinderella story but I really despise certain aspects of one. Many Cinderella stories portray her as a girl who cannot stand up for herself and needs a prince to save her from misery. Unlike many of these versions the film, Ever After, is completely different. In the film "Cinderella" must deal with a crappy family situation but she proves things can get better, but only if you make it happen, not wait for someone else too. So now I am off to watch the film for like the 20th time!
