When her father enlists to fight for the British in WWI, young Sara Crewe goes to New York to attend the same boarding school her late mother attended. She soon clashes with the severe headmistress, Miss Minchin, who attempts to stifle Sara's creativity and sense of self-worth. Sara's belief that "every girl's a princess" is tested to the limit, however, when word comes that her father was killed in action and his estate has been seized by the British government.Written by

When Sara and her father are traveling from India to New York, a map is shown. This map is inaccurate considering the fact that the subtitle stated the year was 1914. The map that they showed was a post-WWI map instead of a pre-WWI map. There were many countries that didn't exist before then such as Turkey, Czechoslovakia, and more. The year in this map was supposed to be before the war ended but it clearly was not. They showed a map where Austria-Hungary was broken up into many different countries; however that didn't happen until after WWI. There were also many other chronological errors in the map shown.

[Randolph and his servant are at a military hospital, where Randolph has discovered that the amnesiac soldier there is not his son John]
All the hoping... you must think me a fool.
Is it your wish to be wise, sahib?

But if he had, he would have looked more closely upon the soldier's face.
And what would he have seen?
Pain, sahib. He needs to be cared for.
He's not my responsibility.
A wise man would remember that this soldier was...

A Little Princess is a great movie of friendship and hope. It shows that all little girls can be princesses regardless of race, appearance, or being a snob. The year is 1914 and little Sarah is forced to go to a school in New York, New York (after spending all her life in India) when her father must fight for Britain in the First World War. Immediately Sarah has made two foes, the head-mistress and founder Miss Minchin and Livinia the school bully. Miss Minchin doesn't like Sarah because Sarah is imaginative and smart. Livinia doesn't like Sarah because she is a threat to her popularity. When a tragic problem arises Sarah is reduced to a servant girl her friends show her that she doesn't need to give up on life. This movie is wonderfully heart touching with a great ending. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
