If you’re looking for something to watch, look no farther. This is a Great Movie. I really enjoyed watching this Movie and I think you will too. It’s the Cinderella Tale spun in a new and fun way. Charlayne Woodard does an excellent job of Singing, Acting, and Dancing. And the Acting is so very, very good. Very Good. It’s right in the WWII Era. And the singing and dancing is great. So Pop some Popcorn and Enjoy!
In this African-American retelling of “Cinderella,” southern girl Cindy (Charlayne Woodard) must move to World War II-era Harlem, N.Y., after her father remarries. Cindy’s new life becomes fraught with trouble as she finds herself tormented by her overbearing stepmother and relentless stepsisters. Cindy sneaks out one night and meets gallant Marine Joe Prince (Clifton Davis), falling for him instantly. But will Cindy ever see Prince again? An old tennis shoe may hold the key to her happiness.
Folks, this is one very Special Black American Movie! It’s a beautiful story done by excellent Stars.
