Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are multiple scenes where the subservience of the African American girl is amplified for the storyline. The main character is also placed in a similar subservient role later on.

  • One scene shows Sara attempting to escape Minchin's school by climbing a single board to the nearby building where Ram-Dass resides.
