Indy lives with her aunt and uncle and believes her life is fine until an accident brings a new guy into her life. Bryant Bailey is not Indy’s type – she’s never been into guys like him.

A modern telling of Cinderella, based on the novel by Jenni James.
Director: Brian Brough
Writers: Jenni James, Brittany Wiscombe
Starring: Paris Warner, Tim Flynn, Tanner Gillman
I know this is just a low budget film but I cried multiple times. It’s relevant and well written. It’s on point when it comes to emotional child abuse. I myself have experienced physical and emotional abuse by my mom. Just like the main character, I did not know it was abuse at that time. The rest of my family were also my mom’s victims including my dad. Until now, he does not acknowledge the abuse because he is still under her manipulation. Thankfully I have a “Bryant” in my life, my husband. He removed me from my situation and made me realize what I have been through. He made me see things from a different point of view to better understand what happened to me. This is the best and most relevant Cinderella story ever. ❤
I am starting to feel that the less budget a movie has, the more it has value and genuineness.
Say what u want about this movie but I love how the love triangle was handled realistically for once 😂 they solved it through love and respect for one another 😍
I love the fact that this movie portrayed realism and mental health rather than just romance. It definitely was refreshing to see how the ‘love triangle’ was respecting and comfortable rather than toxic and ‘you have to choose’ type scenario. I think that the actress did an incredible job in displaying the emotions that you would see in real life if you were in this scenario.
“I never cared about the money, I just wanted to belong.” That is just so sweet, heartfelt, and sefless.
Wow, this was a suprisingly sensitive and thoughtful movie that went way beyond the usual Cinderella trope to expose emotional abuse, the psychology of the abusers (they always think they’re right), and also what trauma looks like. I work with people who have trauma, and the scene by the tree where she’s shaking was so well acted and realistic. Kudos to the writers and actors.
I love the fact that the dad is encouraging his son to be respectful, is supporting his son in letting the girl he likes choose, and is bringing his attention to his kind heart.
Wow, this movie was way better than anticipated! The actors did a good job, especially Warner. The movie wasn’t just another Cinderella remix, it honestly stood on it’s own, and I appreciated the awareness it raises about emotional abuse. Also the healthy way to respond to rejection. It was also very realistic that the best friend didn’t realize emotional abuse was a thing, so he didn’t know he could/should speak up for Indy. I felt bad for Maxwell that she didn’t go to prom with him, though, since they were dating already and it kindof looked like she broke up with him because he had to have a Dr appointment.
At the beginning, I wasn’t confident that this movie was going to turn out so good. However, as the movie progressed, the plot continued to surprise me. The way Indy’s “family” emotionally abused her was by far the most realistic portrayal I’ve ever seen come from such a film. It was also an amazing addition to have Indy act oblivious to the fact that she was being abused when the facts were brought up to her. I enjoyed that there was little school involvement and that this film focused more on family and romance. As far as the love triangle went, it was relieving to see all three of them be so respectful of each others, as these situations should be portrayed rather than teaching younger people to be disrespectful if the person they like doesn’t necessarily like them the same way. The acting could most definitely be improved, but they did very well as far as I’m concerned. Though, I truly can’t say that a single detail of this film disappointed me. I had a better time watching this than many movies I’ve seen with higher budgets.
I know it’s a low budget movie, the acting can be improved but damn this was a very good movie. The way Brian handles rejection, how they acknowledge emotional abuse is a thing, and how Max is not actually a bad person but he sees thing from a friend’s pov which sometimes wouldn’t notice this. Kudos to writers and director and all the person related in making this movie for highlighting all the issue you guys did a very great job!
Consent, awareness about what is abuse (physical/emotional) , healthy boundaries ,open communication,healthy relationships and so much more. Definitely a much better version for all ages. Also how the girl and the second guy talk out their feelings and maturely parted ways is amazing.
