    Cliche, and the whole ‘women can be anything’ is a bit forced. I wonder how historically accurate it is to give Maryellen the questions she had about that. Were ten year old girls questioning at that time? Maybe, IDK. Love the actress who plays Maryellen though!

    Wonderful! This was a great little short movie. The acting was superb and very realistic. The story was touching and brought tears to my eyes. I loved seeing how Maryellen learned from her very wise mother, who herself was a model of proper parenting. Her care for the children in the hosptial and discovery that her fun hobby of drawing was actually a talent that did indeed make her extraordinary was a beautiful story line. I love that the movie was about a girl and the different challenges she faced in the 1950’s. I also loved that her mother took her own advice and listened, eventually buying Maryellen that pair of pants she wanted so much! Great show for family!

    My daughter received the doll from her birthday last spring. She has been anxiously waiting for a movie to come out. The storyline for the time period was excellent, the acting great, and it met this AG fan’s expectations. I like the way the movie recognized how a family can be filled with different personalities. Maryellen was meant to be a world changer. Her drive to be creative and help others is a good thing for young girls to see. Excellent film!
