A very long time ago...
...there lived a beautiful princess, in a mystical land known as...
She was married to the handsome Prince Rama...
...who had been banished to the enchanted forest...
...by his jealous stepmother, Queen Kaikeyi.
...Princess Sita saw a wounded deer in the woods...
...and she begged Rama to go and help it.
Rama drew a circle in the ground and said to her:
"This is a magic circle.
So long as you stay inside it...
...no harm can come to you."
That night, the princess heard a horrible cry.
Thinking it was her beloved Rama in danger...
...the princess ran from the circle to answer the cry.
She soon came across an old beggar man.
Although she had no money to give him...
...she could not refuse his plea.
As soon as he had the bracelet...
...he transformed into the 10-headed demon, Ravana.
He grabs the princess and takes her to his palace...
...where he attempts to make her his bride.
Did you ever know a real prince, Maya?
Yes, Laki's father.
-I thought he was in the army. -He was.
And he was my prince.
And I, his princess.
But I mean real princes and princesses.
All the women are princesses.
I shall miss it here.
India is the only place on earth that stirs the imagination.
I wish we could stay here forever.
I know, sweetheart. But now that England comes to war...
我知道 亲爱的 但英格兰正在打仗
...I must go too. You understand that, don't you?
我必须参加战役 这你能理解 对吗
But why must I go to America?
Because it's safer.
And besides, you'll be going to the same school
your mother went to when she was your age...
- ...in a city called? -New York.
Maya told me that all girls are princesses.
Maya is a very wise woman.
You can be anything you want to be, my lover, as long as you believe.
-What do you believe? -I believe that you are...
...and always will be, my little princess.
I gave this to your mother on our wedding day.
I want you to have it.
She was so beautiful.
What did you love most about her?
I loved the way her eyes lit up when she laughed.
Just like yours do.
I loved the sound of her voice when she sang me the Indian folksong.
But I think, more than anything else...
...I loved dancing with her!
You must be Captain Crewe.
My sister will be down presently.
We were just preparing the young lady's room.
Your beautiful things arrived this morning.
Thank you, er...?
Heavens, Amelia. Amelia Minchin.
How delightful to meet you!
And this must be little Sara.
My, what a beautiful child.
I was telling the Captain...
Thank you, Amelia, that'll be all.
谢谢 爱米丽亚 没你的事了
Now, won't you both follow me?
Classes begin promptly at 8:00.
We cover all subjects: literature, math, science...
这里教授所有课程 文学 数学 科学
...and of course, both French and Latin.
Oh, Sara speaks fluent...
Luncheon is served at 1:30. After we take our daily walk...
...unless the weather is extremely inclement.
At 4:00, the girls attend etiquette classes...
...where they're trained in the formal graces of society.
Study hall is between 4:30 and 6:30, followed by a light supper.
Before then bedtime, we read from one of the classics...
...something the children look forward to be great attanding anticipation.
Sunday is a day of rest.
Students may write only to their parents.
And of course, we attend church. Have you any questions?
当然 我们也要去教堂 您还有什么问题吗
Je mange, tu manges
Excusez-moi, monsieur Dufarge
I would like you to say hello to our new arrival...Miss Sara Crewe.
You must tell them all about your exciting life in India.
No doubt she'll be our most popular student in no time.
Now, there are certain rules that should be made quite clear.
The first is the Order Rule...
...which requires the girls keep their rooms spotless.
These rules are strictly enforced.
But I assure you, Captain Crewe, the results are well worth the effort.
我向你保证 克鲁上尉 这是卓有成效的
Our reputation for sending the most poised...
...and charming young ladies into society is one of the highest.
Also, I'm afraid jewelry and such finery are not allowed.
What if I wear it in my room, during my free time?
Well, if you absolutely insist.
She's gona get so much trouble.
-je mange -je mange
-tu manges -tu manges
It's our largest suite.
Thank you for all the care you've taken, Miss Minchin.
I want Sara to feel as much as possible at home while I'm away.
-No expense shall be spared. -Of course not.
Now I'll let you two say goodbye.
I konw you don't have much time before your boat leaves.
We'll write to each other every day.
How do you like your room?
I made sure it was the best, with corner windows and a fireplace.
And with all your toys and clothes moved in...
...it's as if you were really...
I think I saw something...
...on that chair over there.
She came all the way from France juse to be with you.
You know dolls make the very best friends.
Just because they can't speak doesn't mean they don't listen.
And did you know, when we leave them alone in our room, they come to life?
知道吗 我们离开房间 她就变活了
Before we walk in, they quickly return to their places. Quick likes light!
Why don't they come to life in front of us so that we can see them?
Because it's magic.
Magic has to be believed.
That's the only way it's real.
Whenever you're afraid, or miss me terribly...
...just tell Emily.
She'll get the message to me, wherever I am.
And I'll send one back right away...
...so when you hug her...
...you'll be getting a hug from me.
It's all right, Papa.
I'm going to be fine.
What are you doing?
Memorizing me by heart?
No, I already know you by heart.
What was that noise last night?
Somebody was crying for hours.
That's nothing. You should hear Josephine snore.
-Who was it? -The new girl?
She hasn't come out of her room yet. Did you see all her toys?
I want your hair ribbon.
Her father grows crackers or something. They're very rich.
They must be. Everyone I know eats crackers.
Her father's British. I hear he's best friends with the king and queen.
Well, I hear he was thrown out of India...
...because people died from eating his poisoned crackers.
My aunt once died from eating poisoned string beans.
-Who cares about her? -Yeah, who cares?
-谁在乎你姨妈 -就是 谁在乎
But before we walk in and catch them, they return to their places,
quick as lightning.
Gosh, she's fast.
We are not customed to delay everyone's breakfast for one student.
I'm sorry, Miss Minchin, but I found my mama...
You're not the only child here, Sara, you have to remember that.
Yes, yes, yes, good morning.
I trust you remember our newest pupil from our visit to class yesterday.
Sara, this is Monsieur Dufarge.
You willl begin French lessons with him this afternoon.
Sara, you most certainly do.
Now apologize to Monsieur this instance for your rudeness.
-But I didn't mean to be rude. -Now!
-对不起 我不是想冒犯他 -道歉
This child doesn't need to learn French. She practically is French!
She learned from her father.
I understood perfectly well what she said, Monsieur.
I'm sorry. But we tried to tell you.
Well, perhaps She can tutor the younger children...
...and just be able to help you with your pronunciation, Miss Minchin.
Are those sausages I smell?
Sara, there's no talking at the table.
Doesn't seem natural.
I won't say it again.
Seven times five is 35.
Seven times six is 42.
Seven times seven is 49.
Seven times eight is...
Or 72? Or 93? Or 12?
72 93 还是12
I'm sorry, Miss Minchin.
I studied for hours last night.
I find that very hard to believe.
And I imagine your father will as well.
Please don't tell him, Miss Minchin.
I promise I'll do better.
Lavinia, you may continue.
Seven times eight is 56.
I miss you already.
Except I never imagined there would be so many rules at school.
I guess they're there for a purpose...
...and I'm trying hard to obey them.
But I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong.
I hope when you read this...
...it kindles your heart and puts a smile on your face.
Papa, I'm so proud of you. And I think about you every moment.
And I love you forever.
Lottie, you mustn't get so excited.
Oh, please, Lottie dear! Please stop screaming!
求你了 洛蒂宝贝 别再叫了
How about a cookie? Would you like that?
It's very hard to study with you carrying on like this.
You'll see her soon.
No, I won't. She's dead, and I won't ever see her again!
不会 她死了 我再见不到她了
Well, I don't have a mother either.
In heaven with my baby sister.
That doesn't mean I can't talk to her.
I tell her everything, I know she hears me.
Because that's what angels do.
-Your mama's an angel? -Of course.
And so is yours. With beautiful wings of silk...
...and a crown of baby rosebuds.
And they all live together in a castle.
Do you know what it's made of?
...hundreds of them, so bright they shine like gold.
When the angels want to go someplace...
...they just whistle, like this.
And a cloud floats to the castle and picks them up.
As the angels fly through the sky...
...riding the cloud like a magic carpet...
...under the moon and through the stars...
...until they're hovering right above us.
That's how they can look down and see if we're all right.
And sometimes they even send messages to us.
Of course, you can't hear the messages
if you're kicking and screaming as loudly as you were.
But they always try again, just in case we've missed it.
That's Becky. She's not allowed to talk to us.
She's a servant girl, and she has dark skin.
Well, doesn't that mean something?
Is there anything I can do for you, miss?
I just came up here to change my shoes.
No, there's nothing.
Well, then begging your pardon, but we'll both be in trouble if you stay.
All right, girls, pair up.
好了 姑娘们 排好队
"Sir Edward saw the sorrow in his daughter's eyes...
...but he knew that family honor must prevail at all costs.
Nobility was not thought to be trifled with.
'I beg of you, Charlotte,' he said.
"我向你求婚 夏洛特" 他说
'Marry Sir John in the spring, as he has asked.'
Thank you, Lavinia.
Sara, you may take your turn.
"Charlotte turned to her father and said, 'Father, you are right.
夏洛特转过身对父亲说 "父亲 你是对的"
'I must put away my foolish fancies and childhood wishes.'
But I simply won't do it.
I'm sorry, Father.
When I marry, it'll be for love.
And with that, Charlotte ran from the house.
Waiting outside was the handsome stable boy, Pierre...
...whom Charlotte secretly adored.
Together they escaped to the coast
and quickly set sail to the island for Tahiti.
But when they were halfway there,
their ship was attacked by band of pirates!
Rather than be eaten alive...
...Charlotte and Pierre threw themselves into the raging sea.
As they began to drown...
...they held each other close, and swore undying love.
But then, when all seemed lost, a group of mermaids appeared and rescued...
What are you doing?
I couldn't bear to see Charlotte marry that man,
so I imagined a different ending.
Don't you ever do that, Miss Minchin?
Believe in something, just to make it seem real?
That's easy for a child who has everything.
There will be no more make-believe at this school...
...during reading or any other time.
-Is that understood? -Yes, Miss Minchin.
-明白了吗 -是 明钦小姐
All of you, go to your bed this instant.
I never heard a story like that in my whole life.
I...I bet you know lots of them, don't you, Sara?
你一定知道很多故事 对吗 莎拉
I want silence up there!
We have to do something about this communication rule.
Hey, after Minchin goes to bed...
...we'll sneak into your room, and you can tell us a real story is.
How about it, Sara?
Only if it's just you three.
The evil Ravana locked the princess up in his palace tower.
There she stayed for many weeks...
...just staring out her window...
...missing her Prince Rama terribly.
Perfect. You look just like Emily.
My father hates dolls. And he hates coming here.
Says he doesn't belong.
Then why does he send you?
Because he wants me to belong.
My little girl. She spoke French! She really spoke French.
我的小女儿 她会说法语 她真的会说法语
Your mother and I are very proud of you.
I caught you, Nellie!
Rama approached the thorny palace...
...unaware that Ravana was waiting for him.
That's it! I can't take it anymore!
I don't care what you say about Sara's stories.
They' ve got to be more fun than watching your hair being combed!
If anyone else feels the same way, I think she should leave too.
But the evil Ravana was not through yet.
This one, he took a bow that could hold, not one, but 10 arrows...
...each filled with the deadly poison.
The arrows sped through the air...
...heading straight for Rama.
And the arrows hit the ground...
...and released their poison, giant clouds of thick, yellow smoke.
-I want a big piece! -Oh, hush up, Lottie.
-我想要一块大的蛋糕 -快点 洛蒂
I am sure "Princess" Sara will give everyone a fair share.
I told her that's what you were.
Well, not just me. All girls are princesses.
Even snotty, two-faced bullies like you, Lavinia.
Here, Lavinia, you get a big piece.
Yes, may I help you?
Captain Crewe's solicitor.
Oh, yes, do come in.
We're just celebrating little Sara's birthday.
May I speak to you in private?
Oh, yes, of course. Right this way.
May I just say is about that Sara is quite the favorite around here.
We went to great lengths to make this a special day for her.
I'm afraid your check to us this month will be rather large.
There will be no check, Miss Minchin.
The party is over! I want everyone go to their rooms, this instant!
But Miss Minchin, we...
Sara, you will stay behind.
I have something to tell you.
Amelia, go to Sara's room and find a simple black dress.
If nothing is suitable, borrow one from other girls.
-But, sister, I... -Do as I say.
-可是 姐姐 -按我说的去做
Why would I need a black dress, Miss Minchin?
I'm afraid I have some bad news, Sara.
It's been discovered that your father has died.
He was killed in battle several weeks ago.
That's the reality, the situation,
and there's nothing anyone can do to change it.
What's more, the British government has seized control of his company
and all of his assets...
...leaving you penniless, without any money.
And since you've no relations, this puts me in a terrible position.
What are you staring at?
Don't you understand what I'm saying?
You are alone in the world...
...unless I decide to keep you here out of charity.
Because of the expenses you've incurred,
everything you own now belongs to me...
...your clothes, your toys, everything.
你的衣服 玩具 所有东西
But they'll hardly make up for the financial losses I've suffered.
From now on, you must earn your room and board here.
You'll move to the attic with Becky and work as a servant.
If you fail to meet the standards in this institution...
...or if you don't do as told, you'll be thrown out.
the streets of this city are not kind to homeless beggars.
Report to Mabel in the kitchen promptly at 5 a.m.
I could you'll be arrested for taking this.
You're lucky I let you keep that doll.
You may have the book.
But another incident like this and I will call the authorities.
I expect you to remember, Sara Crewe...
...you're not a princess any longer.
Sara, what happened?
You're to serve the girls without conversation, you understand?
Sara will be working here as a servant from now on.
There will be no communication exchange. Is that clear?
Yes, Miss Minchin.
Seven times five is 35.
Seven times six is 42.
It's my son, John!
It's John, Ram Dass!
It's John. Help me.
-Come inside. -Help.
On, I thought you'd be sleeping.
I never got a chance to give you your birthday present.
It's a picture of where you used to live.
See the blue threads? That's the river.
These are the mountains you always talk about.
Why don't you tell stories anymore?
They're just make-believe. They don't mean anything.
On, but they've always meant something to me.
Some days I thought I'd die, until I heard you talk about the magic.
There is no magic, Becky.
...can you hear me?
Are you still a princess?
You better get back in line or we'll both be in trouble.
All right, girls, get in line.
It's for Mr. Randolph, next door.
The poor man. His son is missing in action in Europe.
You mean John? He's such a nice boy.
I told you not to give your money away.
Excuse me. Excuse me.
You see? You never get rid of them.
Would you like to buy a flower?
Would you like to buy a flower?
-Would you? -Not today.
Sir, would you like to buy a flower?
Would you like a flower, sir?
Would you like a flower?
What is it, little mouse?
Are you a prisoner too?
Is it ever this cold where you come from?
Tell me about it, Sara. Tell me again about India.
跟我说说 莎拉 再给我讲讲印度
...the air is so hot there...
...you can almost taste it.
I bet it tastes like coconuts.
No, it's more like spices, really.
Curry and saffron.
Tigers sleep under trees...
...and elephants cool themselves in the lakes.
The warm wind blows through the fields...
...and the spirits ride it...
...singing as they look down on us.
Their voices echo through the mountains...
...is all different colors...
...like a peacock's tail.
Soot all over the place, you clumsy fool!
Get out of my house!
And you can forget being paid this week!
Ungrateful little wretch.
I told I won't tolerate any soot in this house!
And there, just look at my boot! It's filthy!
Out! And take this ridiculous-looking thing with you!
Where, where might Miss Amelia be this morning?
Good morning, Frances. You're here early this morning.
早安 法兰西斯 你今天来得真早
A working man gets up early if he wants to have an effect on the world.
And what a powerful effect you have, Frances.
Where have you been?
I've been chilled for half an hour. Hurry up and light a fire.
And don't touch anything else with your dirty hands.
This is my room now, and I won't have you messing it up.
What is that awful smell?
When was your last time you had a bath?
What are you doing?
I don't believe in this!
So you can just stop it! Stop it, I said!
What did you just do?
Just a little curse I learned from a witch in India.
-What kind of curse? -You'll see.
But I wouldn't brush my hair as much if I were you.
It's all right. I saved it especially for you.
Is this where you live?
You shouldn't be here. It's too dangerous.
Sara, why don't you like me anymore? Did I do something wrong?
No, of course not.
I didn't think you'd want me for a friend...
...now that things are different.
Sara, no, I'm sure you could do just fine without me for a friend...
...but I couldn't get along without you.
I'm sorry. I should've known...
...you wouldn't be like the others.
-What's that? -One knock means "I'm here."
Two knocks means "All is well."
Three means "The coast is clear."
'The demon Minchinweed is asleep.'
Gosh! It all sounds so adventurous!
Look, Becky. We have a visitor.
Oh, Sara, I miss your stories so much.
Won't you tell us what happened to Rama and the princess?
The smoke from Ravana's arrows...
...finally began to lift.
Rama lay dead on the ground.
But then a wonderful thing happened.
The gazelle laid down next to Rama, giving him his own life.
He's suffering from cute amnesia...
...one of the rare side effects of poison gas.
His eyes will heal in time.
His memory... who can say?
I'm sorry, Mr. Randolph.
He was found in severe shock...
...with no coat, no identification.
Since your son was the only name unaccounted for...
...they assumed this was John.
All the hoping. You must think me a fool.
Is it your wish to be wise, sahib?
I suppose a wise man wouldn't have come here at all.
...he would have looked closely upon the soldier's face.
What would he have seen?
Pain, sahib. He needs to be cared for.
痛苦 先生 他需要照顾
He's not my responsibility.
A wise man would remember that this soldior was in John's regiment.
If his memory returns, he might tell us what happened to his son.
Perhaps sahib will learn that John is in British hospital...
...wishing that a kind man would take him home, away from his pain.
If the plumber comes, show him the problem.
And don't babble with this man. He's paid by the hour.
And make sure to correct the Latin tests by the time I get back.
Hello, Miss Minchin.
Goodbye, Miss Minchin.
Lottie, not again.
Let's find the locket.
...it's okay. It's all right.
Sara, come quick! It's Lottie, I think Lottie's possessed.
Will you please get that child under control?
Don't worry. Everything's fine.
I thought I saw a mouse.
I swear, that child has a pact with Satan to destroy me.
I'm not cut out for this job. I have no patience for children.
And teaching! All those horrible facts to remember.
I don't like it at all.
You like Frances, don't you?
Of course not. How dare you.
I think he likes you too.
I think you should run away and get married.
It'd be terribly romantic.
What an extraordinary thing to say.
Well, anyway, my sister would be furious if she found out.
So, you'd be long gone by then.
Living in some exotic paradise...
...with that dashing young milkman.
I'd better get to the market.
You're doing well, young man.
You're almost home.
You must trust my eyes, sahib.
-What are you doing here? - We brought you something.
Princess Sara, we like to present you with something we rescued.
In a dangerous adventure.
-Our very own crusade. -Risking all our lives.
I don't know what to say.
You are the best friends anyone could ever ask for.
It's all right. It's just my little monkey friend, Hanuman.
没事的 这是我的小朋友 汉纳曼
Where did he come from?
Right next door. Look.
Hanuman likes to come to visit me all the time.
Can you really talk to him, Sara?
Hanuman, say hello to all my friends.
After Rama came back to life...
...he raced towards the monster's palace to rescue Sita.
I think we better save the rest of the story for later.
What's going on here?
It's not their fault. I asked them to come.
You five go downstairs immediately.
I'll deal with you later.
...you'll remain locked in your room for the entire day tomorrow
And you will perform all her chores in addition to your own...
...without breakfast, lunch or dinner.
It's time you learned, Sara Crewe...
...that real life has nothing to do with your fantasy games.
It's a cruel, nasty world out there...
...and it's our duty to make the best of it.
Not to indulge in ridiculous dreams, but to be productive and useful.
Do you understand what I'm saying?
But I don't believe in it.
Don't tell me you still fancy yourself a princess.
Good God, child, look around you!
Or better yet, look in the mirror.
Even if they live in tiny old attics.
Even if they dress in rags.
Even if they aren't pretty or smart or young.
They're still princesses. All of us.
Didn't your father ever tell you that?
If I find you up here with any other girls again...
...I'll throw you out into the street!
What're we going to do?
A whole day with nothing to eat.
If Minchin throws me out, I've got no place to go.
I'm here with you. I've always thought of us as sisters.
Let's make a promise riight now to always look out for each other.
Now, what are we going to do about food?
No, there's only one thing to do.
We'll eat a great feast before we go to sleep...
...and that will keep us full all day tomorrow.
Feast? What feast?
Do you see that table there?
It's covered with a beautiful cloth...
...and trays of good things to eat.
Tell me what kind of food there is.
But I don't see any food.
Just make-believe it. Remember what you told me?
-Muffins? -Good! What kind?
-小松饼 -很好 什么样的
Every kind of muffin God ever made, and all of them hot.
But we're not dressed right for such an elegant banquet.
I'm wearing a long velvet cape with fur on the collar.
Well, I always liked diamonds myself.
Rings and bracelets, and a whole dress covered with them.
耳环 戒指 裙子上镶满钻石
Smell those sausages!
I think you went a little too far this time.
I feel like I've been touched by an angel.
Just what we ordered.
I'm a little scared about all of this.
Me too. Do you think we shouldn't eat it?
I'm not that scared.
Thank you for all your kindness. I'm so sorry to inconvenience you.
It is nothing, sahib.
It sounds so familiar...
...yet I don't know what it means.
It is not English. We use it where I am from.
Everything's just a blur.
Maybe someday I'll sort it out.
Give it to me! Give it to me!
Where'd it come from?
I don't know. I just woke up and it was here.
You stole it, didn't you? Just like you stole this locket!
You're nothing but a dirty little thief.
It's my responsibility to protect the children in this school
from animals like you.
Pick your things. You'll be leaving with the police very shortly!
Miss Minchin, please!
Miss Minchin, I didn't do it!
You heard me. I want her picked up immediately!
You've removed the bandages.
I didn't see there wasn't much point. I can see all right.
That's well, come on in, have a brandy.
I'm sure they'll believe you.
No, Becky! I have to get out.
But how? My room's locked too.
The police, they're here!
Let's go, boys. Step lively now.
Quick, help me with this board!
-Right this way. -Yes, madam.
-这边 -是 女士
I'll come back for you. I promise.
-The little beast is running away! -We're trying, miss.
Well, don't just stand there! Go next door and find her!
And take this one while you're at it.
I heard you calling in your sleep last night.
Sometimes when I dream, I sense a part of me that's missing.
It's strange, feeling having your heart remember
something your mind can't.
She jumped like a little animal.
Who's that at this hour?
A child from the school has escaped in your house.
Ram Dass, what's going on here?
I'm sorry to interupt you, but there's a child hiding in your house.
-What? -Search upstairs.
Ram Dass, get some candles!
-Start with the attic. -Let's go.
Make sure you check the closets and under the beds!
Please tell me. I won't hurt you.
Won't you tell me your name?
That's such a pretty name. Sara.
-I'm sorry. -Papa, it's me, Sara.
-对不起 -爸爸 是我
Sara, do you know me?
Oh god papa, don't you remember me?
Papa please, you've got to know me. It's Sara.
爸爸是我 你一定记得我 我是莎拉
Remember India and Maya?
Remember the Ramayana...
...and Emily? And the locket with Mama's picture?
-No. -Oh, Papa, please!
-不 -爸爸 是我
Do you know this man?
This child has no father. Take her away!
Papa, don't ever leave me!
-I missed you. -I love you.
Well, well, well. I hardly recognized you.
I'm glad you straightened everything out.
They released all my property.
I just came to say goodbye, sir.
...and to thank you for everything you've done for us.
No more than you tried to do for my son.
-Take care, Mr. Randolph. -And you too.
You must be glad to be going home.
I have a surprise for you all.
Whenever you think of me, just tell Emily,
and she'll get the message to me.
