* {{Jerkass}}: Rodmilla and Marguerite. Especially Marguerite.

* {{Jerkass}}: Rodmilla and Marguerite. Especially Marguerite. Marguerite, with the latter being much less subtle about it than the former.

* TheChainOfHarm: August merely looking at his new wife Rodmilla and then turning to say "I love you" to his daughter with his dying breath was pretty cold. It's hard to blame Rodmilla for feeling hurt by that. However, Rodmilla then spends the next ten years making Danielle's life as miserable as she possibly can in retaliation, which is ''not'' all right.

* PleaseDontLeaveMe: Rodmilla does one of these to Auguste as he lies dying of a heart attack, but it's more out of selfishness than love, since she's wailing that he "cannot leave [her] here" and basically ignoring his heartbroken young daughter kneeling beside him, and proceeds to be horrible to her for the next ten years. It's implied she's also jealous of the fact that Auguste said his "I love you" to Danielle instead of her.

** Another brutal subversion in the final act of the film; [[spoiler: The morning after the masquerade, Pierre le Pieu arrives at Danielle's father's estate with all of the possessions Rodmilla had secretly been selling to him. While Danielle is aghast at her stepmother's actions, she thanks le Pieu for his kindness in returning them...only to be informed that he simply sold them back to Rodmilla in exchange for Danielle herself.]]

** Another big one is that Henry saves the Mona Lisa, which is depicted as being painted on canvas rolled up in a tube, when it's actually on wood. It's also shown to be a large canvas in the film, whereas the real Mona Lisa is about the size of an average sheet of printer paper.

Danielle de Barbarac (Creator/DrewBarrymore) is the beloved only child of the widowed Auguste de Barbarac and his late wife, Nicole de Lancret. When she is eight years old, he remarries the Baroness [[WickedStepmother Rodmilla de Ghent]] (Creator/AnjelicaHuston), and brings her home along with her two daughters, [[RoyalBrat spoiled and cruel Marguerite]] and [[ShrinkingViolet gentle but weak-willed Jacqueline]] (Creator/MelanieLynskey). Shortly thereafter, he dies, leaving Danielle to the care of her stepmother, who already resents the love that he displays to his daughter (especially as he calls for her over his wife in his final moments), and the estate's three devoted servants - the housemaids, Paulette and Louise, and the retainer, Louise's husband Maurice.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: Zigzagged. There are plenty of moments, but it's not with the hero, it's with Marguerite and Rodmilla. Every time, they prove again and again that, in the dark, they'll take every advantage to get ahead in life. For example, when they trick the Queen into thinking she lost a jewel she "didn't remember putting on that morning".
** An example that crosses the MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: To get her mother's glass slippers, Marguerite threatens Danielle that she'll burn her book if she doesn't hand them over. Even though she gives up the slippers, Marguerite ''still'' burns the book, and Rodmilla holds back Danielle from salvaging it. Turns out, that ''wasn't'' Danielle's book, that was a copy from Prince Henry's library. Either way, it finally helps Danielle recognize how little she can trust her step-family, sans Jaqueline.]]

* NeverMyFault: Rodmilla frequently blames, punishes, and sells her servants for her own poverty and debt, even though her own neglect of the manor (which has the best soil in the providence) and tendency to sell off the servants she needs to work the land (which would bring income) is the reason for her misfortune.

** Rodmilla gets a single moment of this when she tells Danielle how sorry she is she never got to know her mother that she looks a lot like her father.

* TheUnfavourite: Of Rodmilla's two daughters, Jacqueline is obviously ''not'' as dear to her mother as Marguerite is and obviously there's Danielle, whom the Baroness [[AbusiveParents quite clearly doesn't care about in any kind of motherly way at all]].
* WellDoneDaughterGirl: Part of the reason why Danielle puts up with Rodmilla as long as she could is the mere hope of receiving a speckle of maternal affection from her. Shown best when Danielle lights up a bit when Rodmilla has near PetTheDog moment with her.

** Danielle tells Gustave that Rodmilla acts like she has "money to burn". Not only is it an inappropriately modern expression that seems to go as far back as the 20th century, but it is inaccurate, as paper money would not be invented until approximately 250 years later or so. Ironically, the film accurately shows the correct currency of coins made from steels and precious stones, so Danielle's line should have been "money to melt".
