7 to 12 years. Molly An American Girl on the Home Front has a different plot line than the American Girl Molly books but is still an enjoyable movie in its own right. The movie opens with Molly's dad still at home which is unlike the 1st book in which Molly's dad is already serving in England as a doctor. But in the movie, he decides to go war and Molly has to grow to understand his decision. There is still an English girl who comes to live with them, and Molly is still going to be in the school assembly as Miss Victory. However in the movie Molly's father becomes missing in action, which is unlike the book. The movie ends with him coming home in time to see Molly's performance, whereas in the book she was ill in bed when he came home. Still the movie maintains the character growth that Molly undergoes. We still get the same satisfaction of seeing her problem solve to help war effort even in small ways. The movie was executed fine in terms of acting, costume, and directing. This movie is highly recommended for public library collections as American Girl fans will look for it. ( )
