Flashback Friday-An American Girl Holiday (2004)

There are two paths in life to take: the one that is easy and the one which is right (and by nature is much more difficult).

In the 2004 TV movie, An American Girl Holiday, Samantha Parkington (AnnaSophia Robb) is a young lady growing up in the early 20th century. She has just moved in with her grandmother, Grandmary Edwards (Mia Farrow) and will soon begins lessons on how to be a lady.

She has also become fast friends with a girl next door. Nellie O’ Malley (Kelsey Lewis) is not the daughter of the neighbors, but a servant of the family. Can these girls remain friends in spite of the differences between them?

I recall liking this TV movie. It has moments where it becomes a little preachy. However, the message of doing what is right instead of simply taking the easy way out is timeless and ageless.

I recommend it.
