World War I causes upheaval in the life of a young girl in this adaptation of the classic children's tale. After her father enlists in the British army, Sara is forced to leave behind her home in India and stay at the boarding school in New York that her late mother attended. Her fresh personality and exotic tales prove to be a hit with her new schoolmates - but wicked headmistress Miss Minchin sets out to crush her spirit and make her life a misery. Director Alfonso Cuaron went on to make Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, so it will come as no surprise that this film features several dark and tense scenes.
When plucky young depression-era girl Natty's father is forced to leave her to work on the other side of the country, she is determined to find him.
