About the Movie

A wealthy, precocious and loving child is raised in India, but sent away to a New York boarding school by her beloved father when he must go off to war. But when he is declared "missing in action," daddy's little princess, alone and penniless, must use her inner resources of warmth, imagination and principles to overcome hardship. Based on the beloved Victorian-era novel by Frances Hodgon Burnett, and adapted by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Richard LaGravenese ("The Horse Whisperer," "The Bridges of Madison County"). Starring Liesel Mathews ("Blast," "Air Force One"). The Hollywood Reporter calls this "a buoyant and charming adaptation... a magical celebration of one young girl's resilient spirit and triumph in the face of calamity." Variety calls it "an astonishing work... an exquisite, perfectly played serious fantasy... a children's film that plays equally well to kids and adults."
