1995's A Little Princess, based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett and directed by Alfonso Curaron is a gorgeous film with a great story to boot! This film is a reimagining of the 1939 version starring Shirley Temple and moves to story from London to New York and nudges the time period to the era of The Great War. This movie is beautifully shot and has a wonderful message: not all rich people are assholes! Sara, despite immense wealth and privilege has a heart of gold! Sweety loved this movie as a wee tot and its ending had us crying buckets into our strawberry ice cream cones! We'll talk about how this movie compares to the Shirley Temple version, was Ram Dass a magic Indian man or not, and why the HELL was Miss Minchin such a psychopath?!!
