India. She lives there in a beautiful house with a nanny named Maya and her dad.
Emily, her doll. Sara gives them her doll and tells them that every time they hug it, they will really be getting a hug from her.
She becomes a chimney sweep. After Sara and her father are reunited, Miss Minchin loses the school, which becomes the Randolph School For Girls. As Sara, her father, and Becky leave in their carriage, we see Miss Minchin dressed as a chimney sweep, watching them go.
He got amnesia. Captain Crewe got amnesia from inhaling toxic fumes while trying to save the life of Mr. Randolph's son, who dies. Captain Crewe was then mistaken for Randolph's son and taken to his house, which was right next door to Sara's school.
Gives it to Mr. Randolph. On her way home, Sara slides the flower through the handles of Mr. Randolph's front door.
An embroidered pillow. Becky gives Sara a pillow that she had embroidered with pictures of things in India, inspired by the stories Sara was always telling about India.
Her doll and her book. When Sara is forced to move up to the attic, Miss Minchin lets her keep her doll named Emily that her father gave to her, and also a book of Indian folk tales. Sara starts off taking the locket with her too, but Miss Minchin notices it and takes it away from her.
Sara's birthday party. Miss Minchin puts a stop to the party and then tells Sara in private that her father had died.
French. Sara was extremely proficient in French and was excused from taking the class, much to the chagrin of Miss Minchin.
New York. Sara was sent to school in New York City while her father fought in World War 1. It was the same school Sara's mother had attended when she was a little girl.
Her mother's. Her mother died, along with her baby sister. Sara had attended the same school as her mother did. There isn't much more said about her mother and her death, along with her baby sister.
No. Sara's father isn't really dead. They mistake him for the boarding school neighbor's son, John. He lost his memory until Sara was about to be taken to jail for supposedly stealing all these beautiful things that showed up in her room.
The attic. Sara moves to the drafty, dark cellar with Becky. Becky is the other servant girl. Sara is really upset at first and cries. When she first arrived there, she drew a circle around her with chalk, just like the prince in her stories did for Princess Sita. Miss Minchin said that Sara could be thrown out on the streets unless Miss Minchin keeps her there out of "charity".
Her birthday. I think that Miss Minchin shows poor judgment on telling Sara that her father was dead on her birthday. She could have waited. Miss Minchin wasn't exactly the nicest person.
green. Everything is in different shades of green. The directors used it to make it look like an old fashioned movie with limited colors, but didn't want it to be in black and white. This is mentioned on the DVD. Sara has to wear black when she is a servant.
Frances the milkman. Amelia runs off with the milkman when her sister is busy, she is going up to get the locket back from Sara. Amelia has to go out a second story window to be able to get away. She first threw her luggage out, knocking poor Frances over, and then jumped out after them onto Frances.
Sunflowers. Sara described the castle being made of hundreds of sunflowers and that their mother's ride on clouds through the sky. Lottie was screaming because her mother was dead and she would never see her again. Sara's mother had also died and so did Sara's baby sister.
A locket her father gave her. The locket contains a picture of her father and mother. Miss Minchin had her eye on the locket ever since Sara had arrived and when Sara lost her father and had no money, she took the locket away. Sara's friends from school had their own "crusade" and "rescued" the locket from Miss Minchin's office while Miss Minchin was out.
S.S. Cristina Elisa. It says it on the life perserver you see, when they first go to the boat. You have to have a sharp eye for this detail.
French. Sara asks if she has to take French and Miss Minchin yells at her for being rude in front of the teacher. Sara then speaks in perfect French to the teacher in front of Miss Minchin. The teacher says that she could help the little ones and even Miss Minchin with her pronunciation. Miss Minchin did not look too happy about this.
yellow. Sara puts a yellow rose in the handles of the door of her mourning neighbor. She received the rose from a poor woman after Sara had given one of her daughters a roll, that she had purchased with the money a boy gave to her. The boy thought she was a begger.
Sita. The story she tells reflects what is going in Sara's life. The same actor that played Captain Crewe played Prince Rama. This actor was Liam Cunningham. Queen Kaikay had banished her son because she was jealous of him.
