The film uses studio resources to create an entrancing world both in New York and in the heroine's fantasies about India.
It's not only suitable for consumption by those over age 10, it's actually enjoyable.
Cuaron's version of magic realism consists of seeing incredibly fanciful sets and situations in precise detail.
An exemplary version of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel.
An astonishing work of studio artifice, A Little Princess is that rarest of creations, a children's film that plays equally well to kids and adults.
A Little Princess exquisitely re-creates the ephemeral world of childhood, an enchanted kingdom where everything, even make-believe, seems possible.
