Editorial Reviews

The doll you love comes home on DVD in a full-length, live-action movie. Felicity: An American Girl Adventure has all the joy, excitement and you-are-there history of the best-selling books about Felicity Merriman, a spirited girl growing up in Virginia in the years just before the American Revolution. Nine-year-old Felicity (Shailene Woodley) knows she's supposed to stay quietly indoors doing "sitting-down kinds of things." But she yearns for the freedom of the outdoors...and especially for the adventure of riding horses. Then she meets a beautiful, copper-colored mare who's mistreated by her cruel owner. When Felicity tries to rescue the horse she calls Penny, she learns valuable lessons about loyalty, responsibility and independence.

DVD Features:
Documentary
Featurette:Featurette on the American Girl Hospital Behind-the-Scenes documentary

5.0 out of 5 stars A Movie for the Whole Family to Enjoy November 30, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter and I loved the American Girl movie " Samantha: An American Girl Holiday" and eagerly looked forward to "Felicity: An American Girl Adventure". The movie centers around 10 year old Felicity in 1775 Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. Felicity is a tomboy, would rather spend time with the horses, however her mother wishes her to become a "gentlewoman" (wife, mother, housekeeper). Upon taking her "gentlewoman lessons" she meets Annabelle and Elizabeth Cole. The Coles are loyalists from England living in the colonies. Elizabeth and Felicity become friends however their friendship is tested when Elizabeths father is sent to prison for showing loyalty to the king. The other part of the story is that Felicity befriends an abused horse owned by Jiggy Nye. Felicity ends up befriending the horse, training the horse, unintentionally stealing her, only to have her grandfather purchase the horse for her in the end. Felicity starts out as a self centered 10 year old but she learns to put others first, she rescues her father's apprentice Ben from the bounty hunters, she visits Jiggy Nye in prison to give him food and a blanket and lastly she takes care of her family while her mother is ill. By the end of the movie Felicity has changed from a child to a "gentlewoman" as her mother calls her. This movie will appeal to girls as well as boys while introducing American history to them. This is a movie for you to watch with your family again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Well Done Period Movie for the family September 20, 2006
Format:DVD
Getting children interested in history is a tough thing to do, especially colonial American history. And it's a rarity these days when a historical film is made that is directed mainly to children. It's even more rare when such a film is done well enough that adults can enjoy it, too. "Felicity - An American Girl Adventure" is one of those extremely rare movies that shows, fairly accurately, life in the colonial era of our country's history. Oh, I'll be the first to admit that there are 'liberties' taken in this film, as is normal with Hollywood-type movies. But when one compares the liberties taken here to a historical film with more of an adult nature ("The Scarlet Letter" comes to mind) I would say Felicity is much closer to historical accuracy.
The purpose of this film, however, is not necessarily to be a history lesson, but instead an entertaining story set during colonial times. Entertainment that tweens and parents should both enjoy and yet still understand the history behind it.
The best part is - - - there IS history to be learned here.
I enjoyed the inter-action of the main characters, especially with the grandfather, as it shows our ancestors not as stiff wood-cut sketches from history books but real people that actually existed at one time just like we exist today. In the course of watching this film we see fear, concern, anger, frustration...and happiness. This movie includes some of the discourse between family members concerning the outset of what would become the American Revolution, which, for whom this movie is geared towards, was really taking a gamble. But, I feel it paid off. This alone is reason to award this film five stars, as school children in today's day and age do not always get both sides of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous film! November 30, 2005
Format:DVD
I watched the film with my 8-yr-old daughter and 10-year-old son, and we really enjoyed it. The movie spent just enough time talking about Loyalists and Patriots that it really opened the doors for the kids to ask questions about Democrats and Republicans, and how families can be torn apart by their beliefs. The moviw was well-acted and beautifully filmed.

I liked it, and I'm a 50-year old Dad!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice movie for children................. May 29, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Felicity was a wonderful movie for my 8-year old daughter. The scenery was beautiful and the characters were very much like the American Girl books written. My daughter also thought the characters were very polite and kind, something you do not see too often in movies today.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie Ever! January 19, 2006
Format:DVD
My daughter has some thoughts..."I loved this movie. I am 7 years old and I love American Girl. I really like Felicity because she is high spirited, loves horses and is way braver than Ben, a boy! I like the Felicity books too. The movie is a little different than the books, but not much. I think they just did this to make the movie totally awesome. Every girl should watch this movie!!! It is great. Felicity stood up for what she believes in and was helpful and kind. She is someone to look up to."

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!!! February 18, 2007
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This is a got-to-watch movie!! It is so touching and daring when Felicity released her Jiggy Nye's horse which she loved. In doing this, she fell of the horse but managed to jump over the fence and set Penny free. Everything is great, EVERYTHING! I'm a horse-lover myself. Then that's when Felicity shows her kindness and loyalness. She rescued her bestfriend's father from jail through her father. She showed her kindness by giving food and a blanket to Jiggy Nye the man who tried to kill Penny. Again, this is a thumbs-up movie! Great job to Shailene Woodley and to all the people who's hard work made this movie possible for everyone to enjoy!
