One of my favorite AG movies!
(I was the same 11 year old on February 7, 2015.)
As most of you know, this is an American Girl movie about one of the first Beforever characters, Samantha Parkington. Samantha is a nine-year-old growing up in 1904. She was one of the first characters beside Felicity, Kirsten, and Molly, and most fans have read her six-book set, mystery books, and short stories.
This is one of my favorite American Girl movies! Everything is down to detail about 1904 and the stories, clothing, and authencity. But most of you are wondering if this is a good movie.
It is! Other than slight name-calling in the first few minutes and Nellie's mother and father dying, it's a very educational and character-building movie. There is some drama, but absolutely NO actually scary parts in the film! I say it's a very good movie for young girls ages 8 and up, and also very heartwarming.
The perfect feel-good movie. And that's what we all want, right?? The American Girl historical movies were designed to show girls how they are alike and different then and now, and to show them how they can change the world for the better.
So what are you waiting for? Grab some popcorn and press play!
