In the 1770s, a 10-year old independent upper-class girl named Felicity (Shailene Woodley) is living in Williamsburg, Virginia and handling the many challenges life brings to her: taming a stubborn horse, taking care of the family when the mother is ill and choosing sides when tensions rise between the loyalists and the patriots in the American Revolution.
Like Samantha: An American Girl Holiday (the previous installment in the An American Girl series), the film is technically well created: the costumes, music, scenery and photography are all well above the average TV movie level. The story, however, is less diverse and the overwhelming righteousness of Felicity starts getting uninteresting soon. There are also some excruciatingly cheesy moments in the film. Even so, the target audience (young girls and their families) can expect to like the movie alright.
