About this movie

Wiki

A Little Princess is a 1995 American children's film directed by Alfonso Cuarón, starring Liesel Matthews, Eleanor Bron, Liam Cunningham, and Vanessa Lee Chester. Set during World War I, it focuses on a young girl who is relegated to a life of servitude in a New York City boarding school by the headmistress after receiving news that her father was killed in combat. Loosely based upon the novel A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this adaptation was heavily influenced by the 1939 cinematic version and took great creative liberties with the original story. Various differences occur between the original source material and the setting and screenplay of this film.

Due to poor promotion by its distributor, the film hardly made back half its budget. However, the film was critically acclaimed and given various recognition for its significant achievements in art direction and cinematography, among other aspects of its production.
