Putting the Great in The Great Depression

Kit (Abigail Breslin) is a feisty girl growing up in Cincinnati during The Great Depression. She loves nothing more than writing on her typewriter in her tree house and dreaming of growing up to be a reporter. But life outside of her tree fort isn't as idyllic. Her family home is at risk because her father (Chris O'Donnell) has lost his job and can't pay the mortgage. Her dad goes to Chicago to find work, and her mom (Julia Ormond) starts taking boarders in to help pay the bills.

Friendship on the Wrong Side of the Tracks

Kit makes friends with Will (Max Thieriot) and Countee (Willow Smith) who are hobo kids who live down by the river, and she tries selling their stories to the local paper without much luck. In the mean time, all sorts of crazy characters come to board at her house including a magician and a mobile library truck driver.

The Plot Thickens

When Kit's mom's box of valuables is stolen, all the obvious clues point to Kit's hobo friends. It's up to Kit and her friends to dig a little deeper in the hope of clearing the hobos' names. But can they do it?

The Bottom Line

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl is a fun, thrilling, and thoughtful movie that's way smarter and sassier than most of the "girl movies" we've seen lately. Abigail Breslin is the perfect Kit Kitteredge and the period costumes and settings are not to be missed. Round up all of your favorite girls and check out this movie. You won't be disappointed!
