In this first feature film based on the hugely popular American Girl book series, Abigail Breslin, the Academy Award-nominated star of Little Miss Sunshine, takes on the role of a resourceful young girl whose bravery, compassion and determination help her solve a mystery and save her family's home--Kit Kittredge: An American Girl. Kit's happy childhood in Cincinnati, Ohio, is abruptly interrupted during the United States' Great Depression when her father (Chris O'Donnell--Batman & Robin) loses his business and must leave the city to find work. Kit and her mother (Julia Ormond--Iron Jawed Angels) manage by tending their vegetable garden and taking in boarders. But when a crime spree sweeps Cincinnati, striking even Kit's mother -- and Kit's friends are suspected -- Kit determines to find the culprit but discovers a plot that goes far beyond Cincinnati!

Critics Consensus: Refreshingly sweet and sincere, Kit's doll-and-book-inspired do-good mystery may be geared towards the tween girl but will please audiences of all ages.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that kids (especially girls) who are familiar with the vast array of American Girl products (dolls, books, DVDs, etc.) will definitely want to see this movie. The good news is that it's entertaining and even thought-provoking, so it doesn't feel like just a way to sell more stuff (though it probably will do exactly that). And it doesn't depart from the age-appropriateness of the brand -- if anything, it's even tamer than some of the direct-to-DVD movies. There's no swearing; very little violence; and plenty of positive messages. Even kids who've never read an American Girl book will have plenty to enjoy.
