Didn’t Alfonso Cuaron direct A Little Princess?

One of my favorite directors. (He made the best Harry Potter movie by far)

It was his first English language film.

I think most of the cast would agree with you Unfortunately the 2004 film made the least amount of money.

Personally, I loved another financial failure of his, the "Children of Men" (2006) with Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, Michael Caine, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. It portrays one of the grimmest apocalptic futureres ever seen on the screen.

Netflix is making a new version of "All Quiet on the Western Front". It comes out in about a month and a half (28OCT2022). It looks excellent.

The book was legendary, both movie adaptions (1930 and 1979) were great. So I have confidence that this will be worth watching.

(I am also a big WWI content fan, and I am glad that it seems finally more and more WWI content is being released the last couple of years, its a period of history that is often overlooked, and one of the more interesting wars as it was in the middle of technical shifts, its kind of the first new war and last old war at once).

That does not surprise me, the U.S. only got involved at the tail end when things were starting to wrap up (the U.S. was barely there for a year by the time people were actually on the ground from declaration). The U.S. joined both World Wars far too late and only when they basically had no choice.

I am actually surprised that the Ottoman Empire's losses are not larger, but since it was fractured and fell apart after the war its possible the records are not great.
