Identical twins Annie and Hallie, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, later discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
When her father enlists to fight for the British in WWI, young Sara Crewe goes to New York to attend the same boarding school her late mother attended. She soon clashes with the severe headmistress, Miss Minchin, who attempts to stifle Sara's creativity and sense of self-worth. Sara's belief that "every girl's a princess" is tested to the limit, however, when word comes that her father was killed in action and his estate has been seized by the British government.Written by

In the ongoing fairy tale Sara tells throughout the film, the protagonists are played by her parents - the prince is played by her father (Liam Cunningham), and the princess, by her late mother (Alison Moir). See more »
When Miss Minchin introduces Sara to the rest of the class, she then starts saying, "Now, there are certain rules...", and we can see Monsieur Dufarge taking a cup and saucer from behind his desk twice (both times at different angles). See more »
Sara... why don't you tell your stories anymore?
They're just make-believe. They don't mean anything.
Oh, but they've always meant something to me. There were days I thought I would die, until I heard you talk about the magic.
There is no magic, Becky.

A both heartfelt and entertaining story for all ages; it's impossible to not like this movie!
This movie is a must-see for every little girl as well as anyone who still believes in fairy tales. The heartwarming story of Sara Crew and her faith in spite of all odds is enough to melt even the coldest of hearts. This movie tells the story the way it really was in the novel-- unlike the Shirley Temple-sugar-coated ridiculously inaccurate version. The whole family can watch this and enjoy it because there's a little something for everyone. Although there are a few flaws to it (such as ludicrous near-death escapes that only could be believed in fairy tales; besides events that weren't even in the book), the good definitely outweighs the bad and this is an excellent addition to any collection!
