I went to see Kit Kittredge: An American girl tonight and I absolutely loved it! I thought it was great to see the book/doll character I love come to life on the big screen.
Kit Kittredge is a ten-year-old girl growing up in very hard times: The Great Depression. Her father owned a car dealership in the beginning, but after losing his job, heads off to Chicago to find work. Kit is very disappointed and a bit ashamed, but she keeps herself busy helping her mother with the boarders and working toward her dream of becoming a reporter in print. From evil editors to monkeys, Kit deals with them all, even if it means taking risks and being bold.
Kit is portrayed beautifully by Oscar Nominee, Abigail Breslin who played the roll with such emotion, it got me crying (or laughing) with her! The cast also included Julia Ormond (as Mrs. Kittredge), Chris O’Donnell (Mr. Kittredge), Madison Davenport (Ruthie) and Zach Mills (Sterling).
I recommend this to everyone (even you guys out there!) it’s encouraging, inspiring, and everything in between! So go see Kit Kittredge – An American Girl today! What are you waiting for?
