The Little Princess. Set in New York before World War I, Sara Crewe (played by Liesel Matthews) bids farewell
to her father as he goes off to war. She is sent to a private boarding school headed by Miss Minchen
(Eleanor Bron), a harsh and critical woman. Sara quickly becomes friends with several of the other girls at the school, but after a turn of events,
loses her fortune and is forced to cope with dire circumstances. Through her vivid imagination, Sarah
finds refuge in a fanciful world beyond her harsh reality.
