“Imaginative and charming … this adaptation of the beloved children’s books is a jaunty, good-humored film with a sumptuous retro look and a contemporary feel.” – Amanda Lipman, Sight and Sound
The adventures of Madeline, a spunky flame-haired orphan, are lovingly adapted from Ludwig Bemelmans’ classic children’s books in this fun comedy starring Oscar-winner Frances McDormand. The indomitable Madeline (Hatty Jones) and her eleven friends live at a school in an old house in Paris (“In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines, twelve little girls lived in two straight lines”), run by the stern headmistress Miss Clavel (McDormand). (Dir. by Daisy von Scherler Mayer, 1998, USA, 98 mins., Rated PG)
