Best American Girl Movie-A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

My American Girl loving daughters loved this movie. They've watched all the AG movies and this one is their favorite. Not only does it teach valuable lessons about the colonial era it's also kindhearted and fun to watch. Felicity and Elizabeth are their favorite AG dolls too. They love watching this movie with Emma's Felicity and Elizabeth dolls.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (14):

As Felicity, Woodley is energetic, though some of her dialogue sounds like it belongs on a cross-stitch sampler. This movie will appeal to girls who love horses and/or the American Girls. And with its talented cast and period-appropriate settings, it's a movie that parents can appreciate as well. Its Christmas Day climax makes it perfect for enjoying over the holidays as well.

The movie's attention to historical detail -- and its clear explanations of the tensions between loyalists and patriots during this era -- give it educational value that complements the suspenseful tale of Felicity's efforts to save Penny. Particularly thoughtful are the acknowledged tensions that arise between friends and family with different political views.
