Plot Summary

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 James Meek

Trivia Like the character she played, the child actress Liesel Matthews (Sara) also came from a very wealthy background. Matthews (whose actual name was Liesel Pritzker) is a grandchild of wealthy industrialist A. N. Pritzker and a niece of Jay Pritzker, who founded the Hyatt Hotel chain. After a family dispute and lawsuit in her early 20s, Liesel received about $500 million of her family's fortune. She subsequently became a philanthropist in, among other places, India (a country that her character Sara loved as well) and created several educational and development charities. See more »
