This modern-day Cinderella fantasy stars Anne Hathaway as Ella, who lives in a magical world where every child is given a gift by a fairy godmother after they are born. Ella is given the 'gift' of obedience - which soon turns out to be more of a curse, as her thoughtless and selfish father gets re-married after the death of Ella's mother to a vain and cruel woman with two equally unpleasant daughters - and Ella is spellbound to do everything they tell her to.
Determined to track down the godmother who burdened her with this terrible millstone, Ella embarks on a journey that takes in all kinds of magical adventures and fantastical creatures including fairies, elves and ogres, and even a fairy-tale prince (Hugh Dancy).

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
