From Page To Screen: The Making Of ELOISE AT THE PLAZA

Editorial Reviews

Kay Thompson's literary classic comes to life in this TV movie starring a free-spirited 6-year-old living in New York's Plaza Hotel. Sofia Vassilieva lights up the screen as Eloise, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Hilary Knight's illustrated namesake, from her bright red ribbon to her dainty designer shoes. Equal parts irrepressible imp and cherubic charmer, Eloise has the run of the hotel under the (mostly) attentive eye of beloved Nanny, played "rawther" marvelously by the timeless Julie Andrews. As the Plaza prepares for its debutante ball, a young prince arrives incognito, who Eloise befriends in her usual dervish style. The cast's comic timing transforms otherwise seeming clichés into a masterful romp through several stories-within-a-story, whether it's Eloise matchmaking a romantic liaison for Nanny, or orchestrating reconciliation between the prince and his estranged father. A making-of featurette and art lesson by Hilary Knight round out this heartwarming package, a fitting tribute to Eloise's creator. (Ages 5 and older) --Lynn Gibson

Product Description

Based on the best-selling children's classic, ELOISE AT THE PLAZA brings one of literature's most beloved characters to life in a new heartwarming and hilarious movie that "is reason for celebration" (Orlando Sentinel). Eloise (Sofia Vassilieva) is a fun-loving little girl with a knack for finding adventure every place she looks. While under the care of her "rawther" wonderful Nanny (Julie Andrews), Eloise tries to play matchmaker to a lonely prince and wrangle an invitation to the society event of the season. Join New York City's most adventurous six-year-old in this charming new family film. It's "as bright and quick-witted as its high-spirited heroine" (Newsday).

5.0 out of 5 stars Eloise is absolutely Brilliant! November 11, 2003
It dawned a rainy day here in Pennsylvania. My five year old woke up with the flu, feeling positively miserable. I reached into my secret stash of Christmas gifts and pulled out the Eloise movie (recently purchased).
Let me tell you, this sweet, funny movie made my daughter giggle, even through her body aches and upset tummy.
This movie is a brilliant, absolutely fabulous. The casting was wonderful. Julie Andrews as a totally different kind of Nanny is funny and warm. Sophia V, the girl who plays Eloise, is hilarious and extremely talented. The Plaza in the 50s comes to life through the colorful, elegant sets.
Get this movie. It is adorable and fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, and captures the spirit of Eloise! September 3, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was even cuter than I expected, and quite well done. Julie Andrews looks -exactly- like the Nanny pictured in Kay Thompson and Hillary Knight's books. The movie perfectly captures Eloise's endless enthusiasm, as she shows the world what it means to be 6-years-old and living largely unsupervised in one of New York's fanciest hotels. I'm glad this thoroughly likable movie is finally coming out on VHS/DVD, since I missed taping it when it aired on ABC. I had no idea it would be so charming!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this movie! November 7, 2003
By A Customer
When I was little, I loved the Eloise books. When I saw that a movie was being made, I was really excited. I made sure to tape it and have watched it many times, but the quality is, of course, not as good as the DVD will be- so I am going to buy the DVD! The casting in this movie is really good- Sofia and Julie Andrews are wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Film Version January 8, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Six-year-old Eloise (Sofia Vassilieva), is a crazy, fun-loving, curious little girl living in New York's fabulous Plaza Hotel, who manages to find mystery, mayhem, and adventure, no matter where she goes, while her wonderful Nanny (Julie Andrews) chases her all over the place. And, in ELOISE AT THE PLAZA, Eloise sure does get into a lot of mischief. She's trying to wrangle herself an invitation to New York's biggest society event of the season, the Debutante ball, searching for a Prince who is supposedly staying at the Plaza, and playing matchmaker for Nanny, who just happens to have a secret crush on a certain Lord living at the hotel.
With appearances by Jeffrey Tambor, playing a fantastically neurotic Mr. Salamone, Hilary Knight, the original artist who illustrated all of the ELOISE books, and a dog and turtle, playing Skipperdee and Weenie, who couldn't be more precious, ELOISE AT THE PLAZA is sure to please even the most cold-hearted person. A must-have for all. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eloise is amazing! May 28, 2004
By Jessica
OK, I honestly don't know what that guy is on, but how can he say Eloise is a terrible role-model? In a society filled with people such as Britney or Christina most parents would be thrilled to know that their 14 year old daughter admires someone half her age who says and does what everyone (regardless of age)is thinking, or wants to do! No matter who you are and what age you are, you have something to learn from Eloise, whether that means stay in style with her Adrianne Vitadini pink and white striped sheets (which I have by the way, but I've had them for 8 years), or to take a risk, stand up to someone, and to be yourself no matter what the circumstances! Eloise, in my opinion is a fabulous role model, for young kids, teens wanting to stay young, or adults wanting to let out that Eloise that I know for a fact is in us all!!
Was that kinda preachy??? lol
and just for the record--i am 14!

5.0 out of 5 stars forty years of fun December 5, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have loved Eloise since I saw a TV special long ago in the days of live TV. Eloise is not a 'brat'; she is a free spirit who loves adventure and is not afraid to try things. She is an experimenter. Eloise is what children would like to be, if only they dared. Sofia brings the absolute essence of Eloise to the screen (I can't imagine anyone doing the role better), and her 'supporting' cast of stars are excellent. I agree that they should make all the Eloise movies while Sofia is still little. I would buy them all for myself (and, of course, my grandchildren, especially the granddaughters). My granddaughters will certainly get this one in their Christmas stockings.

This is a great movie for children and adults alike. Eloise has a little something to offer for children (free-spiritedness and creativity) and adults (a message about listening and opening your heart while speaking your mind) - and a fun way of delivering it! I have always adored Kay Thompson's Eloise character - with her messy hair and silly antics and wild energy! Seeing her come to life through Sofia Vassilieva was a pure joy! Julie Andrews is fantastic as "Nanny"! To be honest, I can't think of a single flaw in this fun little film. It is my 5-year-old daughter's new favorite - and I'm happy to watch it with her over and over again. Eloise is not a perfectly well-behaved princess - but what little girl really IS? I don't think a discussion of role models is even appropriate in the realm of entertainment - if you're looking for role models, read to your children and BE their role model. Eloise is fun and full of life and spirit - and if we all absorb even a fraction of her energy and creativity we'll be better off for it. I hope my daughter is as free-spirited and expressive at age 6 as the fun-loving Eloise - that would prove to me that I am allowing her to be a child in every way possible! What could be better than that?
