Storyline

Cyrano De Bergerac meets Cinderella. Over-worked, harried, and terrified of being put back in foster care, 17-year-old Katie (Lucy Hale) does her stepmother and step-siblings' bidding without complaining. Vocally gifted, Katie feels particularly upset when forced to lay down singing tracks so that her untalented stepsister, Bev Van Ravensway, can hopefully win a recording contract. Bev wants to sign with Kensington Records - whose company President, Guy Morgan, is scouting for new spectacular talent at a talent showcase for the performing arts department at a prestigious private school. Written by ABC Family

One of the best films I've ever watched.
4 May 2019 | by silvermistvioSee all my reviews

It's another film based on the Cinderella story. And also it's directed by the same director who directed Selena Gomez's film, Another Cinderella Story. The difference is that this film is based on the song.

The story is the one we all already know, but when I watch it, I feel like it's the film which I have never watched. Even though I know the story, the film seems to be new.

The songs are so cool. Although it seems like original score a bit, but it still works and very good. I totally love Lucy Hale's voice and her songs.

Overall is that although it doesn't get very high rates, it's one of the best films I've ever watched. Totally worth spending time with.
