The Princess Diaries

Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews star in Garry Marshall's family comedy about an ordinary girl who suddenly finds out that she is, in fact, a princess.

Mia Thermopolis (Hathaway) is a pleasant, if slightly awkward and geeky, 15-year-old high school student living in San Francisco.

She's not the most popular pupil at school, and is regularly picked on by the cheerleader clique. However, all that could be about to change: after her estranged father dies, it's discovered that she's directly in line to the throne of a tiny European country.

But first she must show she has the bearing and beauty necessary for the role - and her grandmother Queen Clarisse Renaldi's (Andrews) first impressions are far from positive.

Can Mia prove her regal relative wrong?

Also starring Hector Elizondo.
