A Little Princess (1995 film)

5 stars
A film as much for the adults as it is for the children - this one does not disappoint. It is based off of a 1905 children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett (who also wrote A Secret Garden). In my opinion it is a perfect story in all ways - filled with a fairy-tale that mimics reality woven throughout the storyline as well as villains and heroes, suspense and adventure, and truth, beauty and goodness.

Although the movie is rated G, I would put it at PG due to some scenes that deal with the reality of war and a ten-headed fantasy monster that shows up a couple of times. (It was an appropriate movie for my 7 and 9 year old however)

Agree! Five stars for both the book and the movie. This adaptation is superbly acted and produced!
