Ever After: The Best Story Ever

Ever After Trailer

I love this film for so many reasons. One reason is because of a particularly great scene where Danielle has an encounter with a manipulator’s eye. This film isn’t for people who like their women frail and helpless. Danielle’s confidence, dedication and strong determination in the midst of foul oppression is inspiring. And Henry’s quite the catch, too.

You can read a review of the movie here. (unless you don’t want to spoil the plot)

While you’re at it, enjoy this classic piece of art by Edmond Blair Leighton (1853-1922), The Accolade

    The music is really beautiful. Here’s a YouTube music video that has some lovely scene music:

    “Walking on Water”

    “Main Title”

    “The Homecoming” (okay … I got chills remembering the scene)

    “Your Highness/What a Surprise”

    Selected Scenes with George Fenton’s music:

    Spoiler alert! (wonderful, melty scene from the movie “the part where you said my name”):

    Okay class, go buy, rent or borrow that movie and witness a beautiful lesson in “one anothering” (Ephesians 5:21).

    Oh, they took down the Youtube video 😦

    Here’s the official site with a teeny window of the same movie trailer with the Loreena McKennett soundtrack:

    Okay, the only good quality trailer I could find on Youtube now is this one:

    It won’t allow me to embed it at WordPress. darn.

    I love this movie as well. In fact, it is one of the few DVD’s we own.

    I guess we share the same quirky tastes in movies.

    Princess Bride, Ever After.

    Don’t tell me, one of my other favs that no one else seems to remember is Much Ado About Nothing… another member of my small collection.

  5. Kathleen Says:

    Yes, I really enjoyed Much Ado About Nothing with Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson Denzel Washington, if that’s the version you’re referring to.

    I love quirky. 🙂

    It is always a pleasure to recognize a kindred spirit.
