It's summer! *cheers* Hey ya'll! It's Light4theLord here. Since I'm homeschooled, I just got finished with that dreaded America - whoops, sorry.

Well, on Dolls N' All, it means.... just a second. There's a doll that's begging for something. Okay, fine, fine, Madi. Just.. leave me alone. I want to write this part. Yes, Madi, I will let you write the next part. Just let go of me, okay? I promise! Madi wants to tell you guys some stuff too.

We get to do lots of stuff. Wanna guess? Oh wait a second. I'm supposed to be doing the DOTM part, aren't I? Light4theLord in the distance, "YES! Just …

Movie Monday!


Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front is a perfect way to start of our Movie Monday series on July 4th, because the Molly movie is all about being patriotic! 

 

 
The story starts with Molly and her friends, Linda and Susan. They spend a lot of time together at school and at home. Molly is very close to her family, and when her father, who is a doctor, decides to go to England to help America’s wounded soldiers it causes Molly to become upset. As the story continues, Molly’s mother goes to work at a factory and Mrs. Gilford, who is the McIntire’s neighbor, comes and babysits Molly and her siblings while their mother is away. One day, Molly comes home with her friends and encounters a girl in her home that is from England, Emily. At first, Emily is quiet and shy and tells the girls her background, including a large manor, servants, and tea with the princesses.

After finding out about a tap-dancing opportunity, Molly is determined to work hard over the summer to become Miss Victory. Somewhere along the line, the McIntire family finds out that Dr. McIntire has been classified Missing.

*SPOILER ALERT*

Another story within the movie is about Molly’s favorite teacher, Miss Campbell. It’s a typical sweetheart story with her fiancé being drafted and then ends up dying.

Emily ends up pouring out her story to Molly late at night during a sad but sweet scene. She really came from a small home where her mother died and they were merely living above a small shop in a tiny apartment.

Molly does end up becoming Miss Victory, and after the Christmas show at school, she suddenly sees her father causing a reunion of the family. Anyways, it’s a sweet ending at Christmas!

 

I liked this AG movie a lot, one of my favorites of the historical movies. Maya Ritter, a Canadian actress (what?!?!?!)  stars as Molly. I love the acting, it’s really good and the story is really sweet. I’d recommend this one! Really, I have no complaints! To me, the whole movie is historically accurate, which would be harder than the GOTY movies (yet I like it more!). Here’s a couple pictures I grabbed off Bing. Enjoy!
