DOWN & DIRTY:
Romantic drama: A young woman must deal with her cruel stepmother and stepsister who have set their sights on the young prince who's fallen in love with her.

NITTY GRITTY:
Danielle (ANNA MAGUIRE) is a young girl growing up on a 16th century French farm. Her happy life is shattered when her father dies of a heart attack and she's left in the hands of her cruel new stepmother, Baroness Rodmilla (ANGELICA HUSTON).

Years later, Danielle (DREW BARRYMORE) is a young woman who now works as a servant for Rodmilla and her two daughters, Marguerite (MEGAN DODDS) and Jacqueline (MELANIE LYNSKEY).

The King and Queen of France (TIMOTHY WEST & JUDY PARFITT) son Prince Henry (DOUGRAY SCOTT) is unhappy that he's stuck in an upcoming prearranged marriage. Wanting to see the world, he flees from the castle, borrows a horse, and rides by Danielle who doesn't recognize him and believes him to be a horse thief. She knocks the prince from his horse with a well-thrown apple, but upon seeing who she hit, Danielle immediately bows in embarrassed respect. Sparks immediately fly between the two.

Later, when Danielle visits the court dressed as a courtier to free one of the farm's workers, she encounters the prince again and his interest in her grows stronger. Danielle Identifies herself with her dead mother's name and wants nothing to do with the prince. She believes he is arrogant and callous, but his charm slowly works its spell on her.

The prince has five days to choose a new bride lest his father proceed with the prearranged marriage. Once word of this gets out Rodmilla plots to have the prince fall for Marguerite, ensuring her family's place among the royals.

THE ENDING:
Danielle attends the Royal Ball dressed in her mother's gown and glass slippers. Prince Henry sees her and goes to her. Rodmilla interrupts them and tells the crowd that Danielle is nothing but a servant girl.

The Prince asks Danielle is this is true and she says yes. The Prince is upset that she lied to him and he storms away. Danielle runs home. The next day she is sold into slavery in return for furniture Rodmilla sold.

The Prince realizes he really does love Danielle and goes looking for her. She escapes from the villainous Pierre le Pieu and is reunited with Prince Henry.

Rodmilla and Marguerite are sent to work in the royal laundry.

Anyone who's familiar with romantic fairy tales knows that Danielle and Prince Henry "live happily ever after" .
