The enduring tale of Cinderella comes to life as never before in this Oscar-nominated musical. The King of Euphrania is growing increasingly troubled that his son and heir, Prince Edward, has not yet taken a wife. And so a plan is hatched, to hold a royal ball and invite every princess in the land, despite the Prince's protests. Meanwhile Cinderella lives in misery, her father has died and her wicked stepmother has made her the house servant. Help is at hand however with the arrival of her fairy godmother and a magical invitation to the ball.

    This is the best Cinderella film! I have loved this since I was a little girl, when it used to be on TV nearly every Xmas. It is timeless and far better than the recent Disney Cinderella film. The songs are fab, there are great actors like Sir Michael Hordern alongside Gemma Craven and Richard Chamberlain. The only thing that bothers me is why does it cost £2 more if I buy it via my computer than via my TV?
