History and Character Perfectly Shared
on March 23, 2014
This film is not just for children. It is a beautiful, charming, informative, poignant, and fun story set in the Great Depression in Cincinnati, in the home of a family trying to survive the hardships of the times. Beautifully acted by all the actors, this story is one you will want to see again and again and again, for its setting, its story, facts about the Worls Progress Administration, self-sufficiency, survival, "lessons" about empathy and tolerance, its humor, and its portrayal of people from all parts of society as they come together, thanks to spunky, bright young "reporter" Kit Kittredge. My favorite movie of its kind. Based on the delightful doll, Kit Kittredge, and her books, which are part of the American Doll collection, this is a film to see and share.
