Set in 1775, Felicity: An American Girl Adventure follows the adventures of 9-year-old Felicity Merriman, who lives with her patriot family in colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. Felicity's father owns and operates a general store, while her mother cares for the family, which includes 6-year-old Nan. Mr. Merriman's apprentice, Ben, lives with the family and dreams of the day when the Colonies will declare their independence from England. When Felicity learns that a beautiful, spirited horse is being abused by its cruel owner, she befriends the animal and helps it escape. Strong-willed and determined, Felicity struggles through lessons on being a "gentlewoman" and makes a friend of Elizabeth (Katie Henney), a young girl from a loyalist family. As a year passes and Christmas approaches, Felicity proves her loyalty and courage through adventures revolving around family, friends and the coming revolution.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is part of the hugely popular American Girls doll/book/entertainment juggernaut. While the content is quite tame overall, a child does sneak out of her house each morning even though her parents have forbidden it. She first steals -- then eventually sets free -- a mistreated horse without significant repercussions. Another character runs away from a contractual agreement to follow his political beliefs but eventually returns and works out a compromise. A beloved grandfather dies, and his passing is treated with dignity and love. A father is jailed for his political beliefs, and a mother nearly dies in childbirth. Reflecting the Revolutionary War era, African Americans are shown only in roles of silent servitude.
