    As with all the "American Girl" stories and telefilms, "Felicity" makes history come alive in a compelling way for young viewers.

    It's heartwarming, it's sweet, and it's just the ticket if you, too, happen to be a 10-year-old girl or the parents of one.

    It's a better film than a viewer, and certainly a parent, could expect from a movie based on an 18-inch piece of plastic.
  4. I suspect that if I were a 10-year-old girl -- which I'm not -- I would love this film... That being said, I can still recommend the movie because, despite some sugary-sweet moments,... [it] isn't condescending to its young target audience and actually has some bite to it.

    Even if this strikes a cynical adult as too syrupy-sweet, it's refreshing to have a too-nice role model.

    For all the predictability of its tomboy-loves-horse plotting, "Felicity" does at least serve up a WB heroine who's not about to have her head turned by some boy.
  7. "Felicity" is a tolerable, even watchable family drama.

    The film's a bit slow-paced and boring at times, but Shailene shined out in her role as a colonial girl in this TV movie. Definitely a must-watch for the kids. Expand
