The characters from the popular "American Girls" series of books and dolls come to life in this made-for-television drama set in the dawning years of the 20th Century. Samantha Parkington (AnnaSophia Robb) is an eight-year-old girl who is sent to live with her grandmother (Mia Farrow) after the tragic death of her parents. While grandmother takes it upon herself to teach Samantha how to behave like a lady, the girl finds she misses her best friend Nellie (Kelsey Lewis), a servant girl who became her closest companion. A visit to the bustling city of New York, however, holds both excitement and welcome surprises for Samantha.

When I was younger, Samantha was my favorite American girl. I read all the books and saved up enough money to buy the doll. Even though I'm older now, I wanted to see what the move was like. I think they combined the 6 books well, that must have been a challenge. All in all, they were faithful to the story, but willing to add and subtract from it to adapt it to film. All my little sisters liked it, and even my brother (who is at the girls-are-gross age) thought it was interesting. My Mom liked it because it was a clean family film that enertained all the kids! I think it is a good movie and a faithful adaption of the books that family will enjoy.

This is one of those movies that will become a classic holiday tradition. The movie captures the true feeling of Christmas and transports you to the early 19th century setting. Fabulous costuming and sets. Excellent acting by all. A must have.

We bought this for our two grand daughters and they absolutely love it and even made Grandmother sit down and watch it with them. We'll be buying some of the other DVDs that are on the same theme of American girl (they also love the American Girl books).

This movie was very cute. I did find that it was off from the books, but it was a movie that left me happy and wishing for Christmas to come quickly. My Samantha doll watched, too!

I like this movie, but I don't think it's outstanding. Annasophia Robb is a good actress and all, I just don't think she was right for sam. Maybe the Samantha movie isn't that great, but I hope that the new Felicity movie will be better.

I've been an avid collector and fan of the American Girl Dolls since I was a child. Though I never owned the Samantha doll, I was eager to see the first American Girl movie and it didn't disappoint! The actors including AnnaSophia Robb who plays Samantha and Mia Farrow as Grandmary were truly authentic. Uncle Gard, Nellie, and Cornelia were characters that were engaging and memorable. This is the perfect movie to watch with your little girl during the holiday season!

This movie is a must get for children. It has a great message behind it. I am new to the American girl scene as my children are entering school. They both loved it, including my husband.
