Daphne is a 19 year old gal from New York goes to England in search of her father. Why? Because he does not know he had a child with an American girlfriend he met while working in Morocco, and whose aristocratic family did not approve of the woman. Raised by her mother (Preston), a professional singer, her long-lost British father (Firth) is part of a very hoity-toity British aristocratic social circle. Once she gets there, however, it doesn't take long before her hip American lifestyle disrupts his entire life. Can she find a balance in the relationship between her two parents, find her own piece of mind, and along the way, possibly fall in love as well? Perhaps most importantly, does she have a chance at being the Debutante of the Year?
Another take on Cinderella which puts this movie clearly in the fantasy sights of the young chick flickers. And though it's not supposed to be a direct remake, this movie is inspired by the 1958 film, 'The Reluctant Debutante', directed by Vincente Minnelli (Liza with a Zee's dad). As we know, the Yanks stereotypical English family are either a bunch of illiterate but lovable cockneys with bad teeth - or a bunch of cold, sexually repressed and insufferable Aristos... with bad teeth. Guess which lot will appear here?

All Amanda Byrnes wants is peace in our time apparently.
