Alone in a new country, wealthy Sara Crewe tries to make friends at boarding school and settle in. But when she learns that she'll never see her beloved father again, her life is turned upside down. Transformed from princess to pauper, she must swap dancing lessons and luxury for drudgery and a room in the attic. #HappyReading
A Little Princess, the classic 1905 novel about young Sara Crewe–who goes from wealth and privilege to virtual slavery–was already a popular 1939 black-and-white movie version with Shirley Temple. But the ’90s film, directed by Alfonso Cuaron, made the most of its rich color palette, infused with gorgeously surreal glimpses of India, where Sara spent her happy childhood.
