An astonishing work of studio artifice, A Little Princess is that rarest of creations, a children's film that plays equally well to kids and adults.

Cuaron finds the perfect style for this trusted formula; what could have been routine kids' stuff flourishes with his sure feeling for space, light and colour. Full Review

Product Description:

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 Synopsis:

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.
