To Europe With Kids presents Movie Monday as a weekly feature to recommend films that might expose children and their families to any small bit of European history, folklore, scenery, or animated imagery as entertainment, perhaps new knowledge, or just a couple of hours of electronic babysitting.

Everybody loves a Cinderella story.  And if your children are old enough to advance from the Disney version to a little more intense remake (rated PG), this one has marvelous scenery from the charming medieval region of Dordogne in France.  Ever After:  A Cinderella Story starring Drew Barrymore, was filmed in three very enchanting châteaux:  Château de Fénélon, Château de Hautefort, and Château de Losse:


In addition to the beautiful châteaux, castles, churches, and fortresses in the rural Dordogne region, the unspoiled countryside and storybook villages might just tempt you to add this destination to your travel bucket-list.

Drew Barrymore plays a fine Cinderella in this 1998 film, and Anjelica Huston as the evil stepmother is extraordinary, as always.  It's a great choice for family movie night.  Watch the trailer here.
