What first ‘drew’ me to the film Ever After, was the storyline. To say the least, my childhood was not the best. Even though I didn’t have a step-mother, my own mother treated me quite the same as Danielle, the character portrayed by Drew Barrymore. Some of the things that were said by Angelica Houston as Rodmilla, were exactly what my own mother had said to me. This really hit me hard. I felt like the film was almost a synopsis of my life, sounds crazy, but true. Just as Prince Henry had turned Danielle’s life around, so did my marrying my spouse. I was very, very lucky to have found my perfect mate. We have been married for many wonderful years. Each time I watch the film, even though it brings tears to my eyes, it reminds me how truly lucky I really am.
