'Kit Kittredge: An American Girl" centers around a young girl living in the struggles of the Great Depression. 10 year old Kit lives in a boarding house her parents own in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has a passion for writing, & dreams of having a story published in the local newspaper. With the help of her friends, Sterling & Ruthie her dream may finally come true.
Kit Kittredge: An American Girl is the first film in the American Girl series to have a theatrical release; the first three were television movies. The New York Times, Jeannette Catsoulis said, "this classy, heart-on-its-sleeve movie is packed with laudable life lessons.”
