Movie Reviews

Boston Globe - 10/10 by Jay Carr 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.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Kenneth Turan Director Alfonso Cuaron, in his first American movie, has fashioned a world so real and so engaging that you can feel it and smell it and taste it as surely as if you were there.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert Cuaron's version of magic realism consists of seeing incredibly fanciful sets and situations in precise detail, and Johnson has provided him with the freedom and logistical support to create such places as the street where Miss Minchin's school looms so impressively.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 9/10 by Rick Groen Cuaron approaches the film not as a fairy tale for children, but a work of magic realism. And perhaps best of all, he doesn't talk down to young folks, in the audience or in the cast. The performances are as natural as skinned knees and missing teeth.
USA Today - 8/10 by Mike Clark This comedy-drama for children is made with more intelligence and imagination than many of the so-called art films that come our way, filling the screen with vivid images that ideally suit its fanciful plot.
San Francisco Examiner - 8/10 by Gary Kamiya A Little Princess is a delightful film. Bring your children, or just bring yourself.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James Berardinelli To be sure, A Little Princess has a few missteps. For one thing, Miss Minchin could have been played with less villainy, but younger viewers will probably appreciate the one-dimensional nastiness. There are also a few moments of overt sweetness, but these are easily forgiven. Actually, there's very little this movie has to apologize for -- it's the rare kind of picture that can be enjoyed by viewers of eight, eighteen, and eighty.
Empire - 8/10 by Caroline Westbrook Soppy and girlish in the extreme, this should keep even the tiniest viewer rapt, while all too many adults may fall victim to an inexplicable bout of eye-watering long before the closing credits.
Chicago Reader - 8/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum The virtues on display are very much those of the heroine: generosity, imagination, charm, and the capacity to keep an audience mesmerized with a good story.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Janet Maslin Shaking off the solemnity that smothers many a well-meaning, high-minded family film, this one revels in an exuberant sense of play, drawing its audience into the wittily heightened reality of a fairy tale. The material, like the title, is a tad precious, but the finished film is much too spirited and pretty for that to matter.
Wall Street Journal - 6/10 by Joe Morgenstern Infused with a dark charm that will appeal to some girls, A Little Princess, based on the classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is as near to a mannered, lushly photographed Merchant/Ivory-style film as you'll get in a kids' movie.
User Review - 10/10 by DavidS. This is truly a classic telling of a classic tale, a must see for the whole family. The ending is so poignant that even though I know what's coming, it still chokes me up.
