Alfonso Cuaron’s movie is as faithful to Frances Hodgeson Burnett’s novel as can be: both are beautiful. The story of a little rich girl who becomes a poor orphaned servant in a strict New York academy, may sound like just the thing to induce sentimental masochism in young girls. But what is captivating is Sara’s capactty for pleasure and love, shining against the repressive tyranny of the work ethic and the grind of poverty. If the book encodes a protest against social injustice, the film comes down in favour of imaginative escapism. Since the story describes a long-gone world of chimney-sweeps and mystical Indian servants, this is the most accessible interpretation.

Seattle is a middle-aged single mother who falls for a man she knew at school, who has since reinvented himself as an Italian gangster. Her daughter is dating a married man while
