Kit Kittredge: An American Girl (2008) short review

Another movie based on an American Girl doll, this one tells the story of an aspiring child writer experiencing the 1930s Depression. It’s exactly what it should be – cute, fun, certainly aimed for children but enjoyable. The production values are high, and there are many character actors (not the least of which is Joan Cusack) doing what they do best.
