Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie includes images of war with dead men strewn about trenches and explosions in the background. Sara loses her father in one of the battles and mourns him for much of the movie. Her mother also is dead. One scary scene shows Sara almost falling to her death. Sara is a remarkable character, however. She sticks up for herself and others at all times and captivates all the school girls with her imaginative stories.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.

Violence

Difficult loss of Sara's father. Battle scenes with explosions in the background and dead bodies strewn over trenches. Neighbor finds out his son has died in the war. Mention of early death of Sara's mother. Scary escape scene where Sara almost falls from a great height.

Language

Social Behavior

Tolerance of individual differences. Sara is accepting of everyone, including the "nerdy" girl at school, and befriends the young African-American maid before she begins working with her. Sara also believes that "all girls are princesses" and repeats this phrase throughout the movie.
