Kit Kittredge: An American Girl

Rated G 91 min. 2008

Bright, inquisitive and generous, Kit Kittredge is a natural born leader. But her happy childhood is abruptly interrupted when her father loses his car dealership and must leave Cincinnati to look for work. Kit and her mother Margaret are left to manage on their own, growing vegetables, selling eggs and even taking in an assortment of boarders including an itinerant magician, a vivacious dance instructor on the prowl for a husband and a zany mobile librarian. When a crime spree sweeps Cincinnati, all signs point to the local "hobo jungle." Kit, who always has her antennae out for a good news story, goes to see the hobo camp for herself and writes an article that creates a sympathetic portrait of the camp's residents. But, when Kit's mother and their boarders become the latest victims in a string of robberies, Kit's loyalties are tested. With all of their savings gone, the Kittredges face losing their house to foreclosure. Determined to recover the stolen money, Kit recruits her friends Ruthie and Stirling to help her track down the real culprit. Together they uncover a plot that goes far beyond Cincinnati!
