The starry-eyed animated film is an adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's timeless story of an aviator whose life is transformed when he meets a little prince in the Sahara Desert. "The Little Prince" is shamelessly sentimental, as it celebrates Saint-Exupéry's 1943 story by setting it in modern times and embedding it within the narrative of a thoroughly modern Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy) whose mother (Rachel McAdams) creates a complicated "Life Plan" for her to ensure that every minute of her day is spent doing only essential things. The girl's mother buys a colorless house that is just like all the other colorless houses in a colorless neighborhood, except for the house next door, a ramshackle affair with a backyard filled with whirligigs, junk and a dilapidated biplane. The scheme is meant to be almost but not quite seamless, so that we join the Aviator as he takes the Little Girl back to his encounter with the Little Prince - rather like the moment in "The Wizard of Oz" when black-and-white switches to color.
