A LITTLE PRINCESS (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

A Little Princess,
no matter how many times it is told, manages to hold its classic form and remain true to its story. Director Alfonzo Cuarón, a director with diverse talent in several genres, does not fail his audience in this film. His vision and the fact that he has a terrific casting department pushes this film into the ‘must have for the home library and re-watch multiple times’ status.
