Ella Enchanted

Director: Tommy O’Haver Starring: Anne Hathaway, Hugh Dancy, Cary Elwis, Joanne Lumley, Minnie Driver and Vivica A. Fox. Plot: Based on Gail Carson Levine’s award winning novel, this is the story of Ella, a young woman who was given a “gift” of obedience by a fairy named Lucinda. Anything anyone tells her to do, she must obey. When her mother passes away, Ella is cared for by her thoughtless and greedy father, who remarries a loathsome woman with two treacherous daughters. This modern-day, fantasy Cinderella features fairies, ogres and elves…as well as a hero in the guise of Prince Charmont, whom Ella falls in love with. Unlike Cinderella though, Ella must depend on herself and her intelligence to get her through her troubles and find Lucinda in order for her “curse” to be broken. Locations: Powerscourt House and Garden, Enniskerry as well as Killruddery House and Garden in Bray were used extensively for locations. Other locations include Luggala Estate, near Roundwood in the Wicklow Mountains and Humewood Castle in Kiltegan, West Wicklow. Ardmore Studios was used for interior shots.
