This critically acclaimed, and Oscar-nominated, family film features a girl, raised by her father in British colonial India until the outbreak of WWI, who experiences change after her father is mistakenly declared dead, a casualty of combat. Critic Roger Ebert called this version of the movie “a magical family film.” This is one in a monthly series of films meant to help interpret some of the scope and complexity of the Great War.
