Cinderella | 2001
Retelling of the classic tale Cinderella set in the early 1950s in upper-class English society. Claudette is a femme fatale who knows how to use her feminine wiles to get what she wants, and what she wants is luxury. Claudette marries a widower for his wealth; she gains control over her new husband, oppresses her stepdaughter, the humble Cinderella, and will stop at nothing to marry off one of her two bratty daughters to the kingdom's guitar-playing prince. When she finds out her new husband is more pauper than prince, she's ruthless as she plans to dispose of him and seek husband number four. Meanwhile, a mysterious mermaid magically transforms Cinderella into a glamorous lady for the royal ball, where she wins the prince's heart.
