Little Princess

by Kelly on 5/23/2002

Little Princess is one of the best films for the whole family that I have seen. I have 5 children ranging in ages from 10 to 18. We saw this film a few years ago, and we all enjoyed it. My husband who usually likes the shoot-em-up types of films, also enjoyed the film. Read More

Editors Note
Note An engaging version of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic tale of a girl who's sent to a boarding school in New York when her father must serve in World War I. The young girl learns that, despite the treatment she receives from a strict headmistress, she'll always be a princess.
Plot Summary
Summary When Sara Crewe's wealthy father is called upon to fight in the British Army, he enrolls her in Miss Minchin's School For Girls. There, Sara's imagination and gift for storytelling win over the other students -- but not the stern Miss Minchin, who immediately bans all make-believe on campus. However, Sara continues to tell her exotic tales late into the night, when the cranky headmistress is fast asleep.| Then, one day, Miss Minchin coldly informs Sara that her father died in battle, and that the only way she can keep a roof over her head is to work as a servant. Sara loses her beautiful room and her fine possessions and moves into the cold, dark attic. But even as she scrubs the toilets and mops the floors, little Sara Crewe holds firmly to her belief that her father is still alive... and she'll do anything, even risk Miss Minchin's wrath, to discover the truth.

Reviews
ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review ...[the movie] is basically a fairy tale--but one rendered with such honesty, such unflinching awareness of a child's infinite capacity for pain and joy, that it touches something deeper than the merely fabulous... It is an affirmation of the human spirit, of the special heroism that can only be found in the very young and pure of heart...
