Kit Kittredge: An American Girl

I just watched Kit Kittredge: An American Girl movie last night. Starring the wonderful child actress Abigail Breslin, it's about The Great Depression and how it affected people. Kit's father loses his automobile dealership and he goes off to Chicago to find work while his family takes in boarders to try to stay afloat. A crime spree hits the country, blamed on "hobos," and two of Kit's hobo friends get framed for some of the crimes. Kit, who aspires to be a reporter, is determined to clear them and find the real thieves.

I think people should watch this even though it's a family movie. It is just as important today, especially with the look at the "hobo" (today "homeless") perspective. Kit does an article about how the hobos help each other out, a really moving piece that she tries to get published at the Cincinatti Register. The editor doesn't want to publish it at first because the public is feeling very anti-hobo.

All around, this is an excellent movie. It does a wonderful job of telling the story without being cutesy or sappy. I give this movie two thumbs up!

Probably. Dunno where though. You could probably do a search for it in torrent form if you don't mind being a pirate. Other than that, Netflix has movies for download if you want to be honest and pay for it. I'm sure there are other options as well.

Hunh, sounds interesting, actually.

Even if I can't help but remember a friend's RP character named Kit when I hear that title ... :-P
