Felicity: An American Girl Adventure (standard DVD cover)

Felicity: An American Girl Adventure is an American Girl Movie based on the character Felicity Merriman and her stories.



The movie opens with Felicity riding astride the family horse, Bess, in the nearby meadow near the woods. She rides out of the meadow and into Williamsburg and to her home, with her voice over saying that her grandfather taught her to embrace the changes that life brings but that she did not understand this until the spring after her tenth birthday. She rides up to the house where Nan is waiting outside for her and says that Mother has been looking for her. Felicity says it's a fine morning for a ride and dismounts. Nan lectures that it's improper for ladies to ride astride a horse and Felicity asks aloud who says that.

Mother is then shown lecturing Felicity that gentlewomen do not ride astride a horse and Felicity quietly defers. Mother asks her to help with the making of the apple butter (along with Rose who is working in the background) and says that today is her tenth birthday and she is growing into an independent young lady and it's time she take on more responsibility. Felicity laments that cooking takes so much work and that afterwards it's just all gone; Mother says this is true and there's nothing anyone can see, but that it gives her pride and pleasure to provide for her family. She wants Felicity to be a notable housewife when she is an adult and in that she must know how to gain pleasure from doing things for others.

Grandfather arrives and the three children greed him warmly. Nan tattles that Felicity was riding astride a horse and Grandfather says that it is her birthday and she can be forgiven for it. Mother asks Felicity to go to the store to get sugar to bake her favorite birthday cake and when Felicity protests that Grandfather has just arrived, says that he needs to rest and she needs to go to the store. Felicity agrees and leaves out to her father's store, Merriman's store as Martha greets her father.

Felicity arrives at the store, greeting Marcus and Ben and asking if Father is there. Ben says that he's in the counting room and asks how he can assist her. She asks for a cone of sugar and, as Ben is getting it, Felicity overhears two young ladies examining the fabric bolts. The elder says the green is lovely and the younger says it would make a splendid ball gown. The elder scoffs and says there would be no use for a ball gown in Williamsburg and the people here probably don't even know how to dance. Felicity, who has walked over, says they have grand dances here and introduces herself. The elder girl identifies Felicity as the shopkeeper's daughter and begs her pardon but that it's unlikely they have the kind of dances she's accustomed to. Felicity says that the Templeton Christmas Eve ball is the grandest in the colonies. The elder dismisses her passively and tells "Bitsy" to come along. "Bitsy" says in a moment to the elder, naming her Annabelle, and introduces herself as Elizabeth Cole. She says to excuse her sister as she woke up in a disagreeable mood--several years ago. The girls giggle. Mr. Cole comes up and asks if Elizabeth is ready to go, and Elisabeth introduces Felicity to him. Mr. Cole greets Felicity and says he's glad to see Elizabeth making a new friend as the family has just arrived from England. Annabelle interrupts saying she is ready to go, and Mr. Cole says a parting to Felicity. Elizabeth does as well, saying it was a pleasure to meet her and the Coles leave.

As they do Father comes out of the counting room and greets Felicity, asking what brings her to the shop. Felicity says she's come for sugar so Mother can bake a ginger cake for her birthday. Father asks Ben if he knows that Felicity is ten today, and Ben congratulates her. Felicity asks if she can stay to help Ben and Marcus at the shop, and when Father says there is no need she protests; Father says that she must learn to listen. He whispers that the answer is no before greeting the arriving Lady Templeton. Lady Templeton greets him and Felicity, remarking how she hardly recognizes her. Father states it's her birthday and Lady Templeton says that explains it. She has her turn around--Felicity is uncomfortable as she does so--and says she is growing into a fine young lady. Felicity thanks her. Lady Templeton asks if she's practicing her dancing, and Father says that Felicity is not much for dancing and would rather spend time at the stables. Lady Templeton says that reminds her and she would like his man to bring a sack of oats around to her house. Father says this is fine and that Ben will be delivering a bit and bridle to Jiggy Nye near the tannery and he'll have him stop by with the oats as well. Lady Templeton, aghast, says that Jiggy Nye doesn't deserve a horse, much less a bridle, and gossips that she's sure he beat his last horse to death and that he's a cold-hearted scoundrel; Felicity, still present, overhears this.

She runs out of the store with Ben carrying the oats, asking if she may accompany him. Ben says she may if she can keep up. Felicity, gathering her skirts, says she wishes she could wear breeches; Ben begs her pardon, and she complains about the restrictions of gowns and petticoats compared to breeches and how they enforce ladylike steps. Ben laughs and Felicity says he should try wearing a gown and petticoats and he calls her a strange child. Felicity protests that she is not much younger than him, and Ben scoffs at the notion of men in petticoats. Felicity continues to complain that it is very tiresome to be a girl with all the things a girl mustn't do, concluding that Ben is lucky to be a boy and he can do whatever he likes. Ben says he cannot do whatever he likes as a apprentice and has no freedom. Felicity argues he has freedom and Ben says that he can't join the militia and must work in the store. Felicity says she would gladly trade places with him any day. Ben looks sour as they continue on.

The two arrive at the tannery and Felicity remarks the smell is enough to make her hair curl as a horse is heard whinnying. They turn the corner to see Jiggy Nye angrily and drunkenly fighting with his new horse, holding a whip and threatening to beat her as she whinnies. Felicity calls her a fine horse and Ben says she's likely a Thoroughbred. Felicity says her coat is the like a bright new copper penny and she would name her Penny if the horse was hers. They watch her rear and fight Jiggy; Ben says she's wild and Felicity says no, she's independent. Jiggy angrily yells he'll beat the fire out of the horse, continuing to drag her around. As Jiggy becomes rougher Felicity, alarmed, yells what's he doing to her and to stop it, running towards them; Jiggy startles and Ben grabs her, and the horse breaks free and runs away, dragging Jiggy behind her and Felicity telling her to run. Jiggy is dragged several yards along the ground until he lets go; he calls the horse a wretched beast, gets to his feet, and marches angrily towards Felicity and Ben. He yells to get away and that Felicity spooked his horse and Felicity yells back that he spooked the horse himself. Ben grabs Felicity to hush her. Jiggy yells at Ben what he is there for and Ben says he's got the bridle and bit he ordered from the shop from Master Merriman. Jiggy demands it and Ben, jerking it away from where he'd held it out, says he's to have payment first. Jiggy yells to keep the blasted bit and to get away threatening to shoot them for trespassing. As they leave Felicity again looks at the horse.

Over dinner Felicity is excitedly retelling what happened at the tannery; when she rises up to demonstrate how Jiggy raised his whip, Mother chides her to sit back down. Father thanks Rose for serving him and then says how Jiggy Nye was a decent fellow; Grandfather adds that no one else knew horses as well, either. Father says that after his wife passed on he began drinking and before he can say more, Mother says there should be a more suitable mealtime topic, so he drops the discussion. She then says they have a surprise for Felicity. Nan asks for a surprise as well and is told that it is for Felicity's birthday. Mother then says the Felicity is to begin her education. Felicity asks if she is to be apprenticed like Ben or working in the store and Mother says no, she is to be educated as a gentlewoman. Felicity says she doesn't want to be educated as a gentlewoman and Nan says she does; Mother says Nan will have her turn when she is ten. Mother continues that the lessons will begin in two days and she'll be educated by a respectable woman named Mrs. Frances Manderly in skills such as penmanship, dancing, stitchery, and serving tea. Felicity interrupts skeptically, and Mother says a lady's manners are judged by how she serves tea and that her mother brought her best teapot from England when she immigrated and that she used to say the King himself would be at home at her tea table. Ben says that he can't see why anyone would want the King at their tea table. Grandfather begs his pardon and Father clears his throat to stop the argument before it begins and asks Ben if he would be kind enough to escort Felicity to her lesson. Ben agrees. Felicity asks why she needs and escort and Mother says a lady doesn't arrive unescorted at a gathering--or constantly ask questions. Felicity asks why not and Father, for a moment, smiles at her.

Two days later with the militia doing marching practice nearby, Felicity is being escorted to her first lesson by Ben. She asks to try Ben's signal whistle and he pulls it away, saying only a soldier may use it in emergency. Felicity says he is no soldier. Ben says he will be someday and that "it" is serious business. Felicity chides him about the whistle being serious business. Ben scoffs and says that what won't matter is knowing how to serve tea once its too expensive to buy, thanks to the King and his ridiculous tax. Felicity tells him not to say any more disrespectful things about the King in front of Grandfather and Ben argues that it's disrespectful for the King to tax the colonies without hearing their voices. The two stop to watch the militia march and Ben says he envies them, to be able to fight for their independence. Felicity says that Grandfather said nothing is worth going to war over. Ben says the ability to govern themselves is. They continue the short walk to Miss Manderly's house where three young ladies are leaving; and Ben says Felicity is at her lessons and as he opens the gate he adds--snarkily--to enjoy her tea. Felicity gives him a chiding look as she walks up to the house.

Felicity is greeted by Miss Manderly, who escorts her inside. She the introduces her to Miss Annabelle and Elizabeth Cole and Elizabeth rises to her feet and greets Felicity happily. Felicity greets them both. Annabelle whispers loudly and disbelievingly to Elizabeth that they're to take lessons with a shopkeeper's daughter. Felicity speaks up that her father's shop is the finest shop in Williamsburg and possibly any of the thirteen colonies. She is about to go on when Miss Manderly, noticing, interrupts to say that their parents have entrusted her to teach them the important task of learning how to take their places in society and that their time together will be pleasant--and civil. She asks if she is understood and the three girls agree politely.

At the start of the tea lesson, Miss Manderly--preparing the tea--says that a gentlewoman must behave perfectly at the tea table, both as a host and a guest. She has them observe the brewing of the tea, then asks Annabelle if she will take tea; Annabelle says yes, with milk. Elisabeth says the same, but Felicity takes both sugar and milk. When Felicity declines a biscuit, Miss Manderly says--as she offers cakes and tea to Elizabeth and Annabelle--that they are not drinking tea or eating because they are thirsty or hungry, but that both are offered as a sign of hospitality and to refuse is to refuse her generosity. Felicity takes the cake and thanks her. Miss Manderly says that her actions do bring up an excellent point: that one may not wish to drink tea all afternoon. She then shows them the polite way to show you have had enough--to turn the cup over on the saucer, set the spoon across it, and say "thank you, I shall take no tea." They then have their tea.

After the lesson, Elizabeth goes to the tannery with Felicity to see Penny, who has been tied to a post. Elizabeth says she's even more beautiful than Felicity said, but so wild. Felicity says she's looked into her eyes and there's spirit under the temperament, not viciousness. She says she can tame her and opens the gate to go inside. Elizabeth tries to warn her, but Felicity tries to approach Penny and soothe her. As she attempts to do so, Jiggy Nye hears the commotion, spots them, and steps out to investigate. Felicity doesn't notice Jiggy and says she'll be back, then turns and tugs Elizabeth away to leave. Elizabeth asks where they are going and Felicity only says to hurry.

That night Felicity--thinking about Penny--gets out of bed, dresses, and creeps downstairs and out of the house. She goes to the tannery and tugs on the gate to try to enter but finds it chained and locked shut, so she climbs the fence. She approaches Penny--making sure to keep an eye on Jiggy's house--and speaking soothingly about how she's her friend and won't hurt her, calling her a fine girl. She sets and apple on the ground and says that while she knows Penny doesn't trust her now, she will. Penny leans down to eat the apple and the crunching alerts Jiggy, who flings the door open and hollers who's out there. Penny gets agitated and Felicity tries to soothe her, but Jiggy's voice sends Penny into a frenzy. Jiggy marches out further to see who is out there, yelling that he'll catch them and they can't run from him. Felicity turns and bolts to leave, but trips over her skirt hem and petticoats into the mud. As she stands, she is confronted by Jiggy standing in front of her. He yells in her face but does not recognize her, and when he tries to catch her she darts around him and runs away with him yelling after her and calling her a little tresspasser.

Books Included in the Film[]

The movies uses the majority of plot events from Felicity's central series intertwined, with the birth of Polly being lifted from Felicity's New Sister.

Movie and Book Differences[]

  • Felicity first meets Elizabeth and Annabelle at Merriman's Store as opposed to Miss Manderly's home at their first lesson; thus, she and Elizabeth already know each other and are on friendly terms.
  • In the books, Felicity begins attending Miss Manderly's lessons around autumn 1774, meaning she is nine at the time. In the movie, Felicity begins her lessons shortly after her tenth birthday in 1775 (when the movie opens). She is also told about the upcoming lessons on her birthday over supper, rather than during family evening time in the parlor.
  • It is over dinner between Father and Grandfather than Jiggy's past is discussed soon after Felicity meets Penny rather than Mr. Pelham telling her and Elizabeth in winter after he is jailed and sickly.
  • Ben is asked to escort Felicity to her lessons each time and not just the first one, rather than Felicity going to them alone.
  • Elizabeth accompanies Felicity to see Penny at Jiggy Nye's tannery following lessons at Miss Manderly's (rather than Nan and William going with her); Felicity approaches Penny the first time then, thinking she can tame her.
  • Felicity starts to sneak out of the house the night after the visit with Elizabeth, rather than after hearing Jiggy Nye's empty statement to give Penny away to whomever can ride her; she is confronted by him that night but runs away unidentified. Later, Ben is with Felicity when she hears Jiggy's empty statement; by then, she can already ride Penny and has tamed her into trusting her. When Jiggy Nye says he never said such a thing after Felicity rides her to the house, Ben stands up for Felicity and states he heard Nye as well (though Nye still denies it).
  • Felicity tells no one about her letting Penny escape.
  • As the Gunpowder Incident is not discussed, it is only stated that growing unrest in the colonies is why Lord Dunmore and his family have left--though given that the movie starts after Felicity's birthday, the incident could have occurred before the start of the movie and thus Felicity has no involvement or interest.
  • Ben runs away and goes missing before the family leaves to King's Creek plantation, rather than while they are already there. Felicity learns about his escape when Marcus tells her that Ben has gone missing most of the afternoon. The rest of the family already knows about his going missing, rather than Felicity finding out first with his note and the rest of the family finding out after the notice in the newspaper.
  • Felicity finds Ben's whistle and a note under Penny's saddle instead of the note in William's birdbottle shortly after hearing bounty hunters are found to be looking for him. When she finds him in the woods, she lectures him about his foolishness and immediately gets him to come back with her rather than helping him try to escape to Yorktown. Ben initially says that he will stay in the stables and leave at midnight, but Felicity's fussing about holding to his promises convince him to turn himself in that night before supper.
  • Felicity suggests that Ben talk to Father about joining the army, rather than talking to her father on his behalf. Ben is then given the opportunity to serve as a soldier at sixteen by Edward when he turns so in about a year. In the books, he is already sixteen and in a little more than a year will turn eighteen, which is when he'll be allowed to serve but must return to complete his apprenticeship.
  • Felicity receives her Riding Habit from Grandfather directly in the movie shortly after their arrival to King's Creek before Penny is found, and he gets to see her in the outfit. In the books, Mother gives Felicity the Travel Trunk containing the outfit after finding it after Grandfather's death and burial, as it was to be a gift on her next birthday, and she thinks it should be given to her now. Felicity is struck with grief at the idea of not being able to thank him for the lovely outfit.
  • Grandfather, not Mrs. Wentworth, mentions the upcoming baby when she fusses over him riding out with Felicity, and Martha is not embarrassed at the mention.
  • Grandfather and Felicity ride out to see the horses that Penny is found among, rather than Mr. Wentworth bringing them to King's Creek; he has actively been searching for Penny since hearing about her from Felicity, rather than being surprised at them finding each other again.
  • The invitation Felicity receives from the footman is for the Templetons' Christmas Eve ball, not a dancing lesson and ball at the Governor's Palace on January 7.
  • In the books, Mother is ill during the Christmas season from a cold and is not pregnant. In the movie she is pregnant and the birth of Polly directly leads to her illness, as the birth was very hard on her. Furthermore, Polly is born at home, not on the road and early as seen in Felicity's New Sister.
  • Ben only escorts Felicity to the Governor's Palace and does not actually attend the dancing lesson and ball in the books. In the movie Ben not only escorts Felicity, but accompanies her to the Templetons' ball.
  • In the books, Father is unable to escort Felicity to the Governor's Palace because Mother is still weak from her illness and Rose is not at the Merriman household to look after her. In the film, Father is unable to escort Felicity to the Templetons' ball because of an emergency meeting held by the Patriot Army; this is also why he is away while Penny is in labor that night, rather than at the plantation settling affairs with Marcus.
  • Jiggy Nye does not sneak away shortly after the birth of Patriot; he remains long enough to be thanked by Mr. Merriman and is invited to Christmas supper.

Character Differences[]

  • Felicity does not initially enjoy the idea of learning to serve tea when she is told about it over supper; in the books, she is interested from the first lessons. Felicity also does not have any loose teeth at her first lesson (in part because Shaliene Woodley was already a teenager and thus was unlikely to have loose baby teeth). However, she still shows interest in dresses and doesn't like the idea of wearing her brown church gown to the ball.
  • Lady Templeton, a well-to-do woman, replaces Mrs. Fitchett as the informer of Jiggy Nye owning Penny; she is also the host of the Christmas ball rather than Lady Dunmore, as by the time of the ball, Lord and Lady Dunmore have left the colony along with their family.
  • Nan is much more of a tattletale and directly bickers with Felicity about her unladylike ways, rather than looking up to her sister in ways and caring about her feelings even as she finds Felicity to be quite unladylike. Nan even states at one point that she hates Ben and he's ruined everything.
  • William is older and already breeched into long pants, roughly about four years old; in the books, he is not yet three at the start and (while one illustration shows him in breeches) is not yet old enough to be breeched, which would be closer to five (when a child was more likely to be stable in their toilet-trained). William would instead be dressed in stays and dresses like his sisters. His character is downplayed and has no lines or major active roles as in the books, and he only passingly interacts with Felicity.
  • Benjamin is fifteen in 1775 at his attempted escape rather than sixteen. He is already bantering with Felicity in small but often rude and openly dismissive ways, as she is a girl. He is still eager to join the militia and passionate about the Patriot cause, but is also openly direct and speaks up about his dislike of the King, even in front of Grandfather at meals. Ben also doesn't offer to teach Felicity to whistle or become exceptionally friendly with her. In contrast, at the start of the books Felicity finds Ben so quiet she barely remembers he is present; it is only later they become friendly and he teaches her skills such as whistling, though Ben is still very quiet for some time even as he becomes passionate about the Patriot cause.
  • Miss Manderly is a younger woman near Mother's age with reddish-brown hair; in the books, she is a much older woman with gray hair. She is also much more firm, especially towards Annabelle's open disparagement of Felicity's class status.
  • The Cole family is explicitly seen to be of a higher social class in the movie (shown with details such as Elizabeth's very fine dress with more trims and use of ribbon) and much more openly Loyalist. Mr. Cole doesn't want the family to patronize Merriman's Store after learning tea is no longer sold there, and Elizabeth repeats things he and Annabelle have said about Patriots such as to not speak to the soldiers in the militia. Mrs. Cole is only seen once, at the Christmas supper.
  • Annabelle is not shown to have a crush on Ben through the story. She instead mistakes him when he is dressed up for a the son of a wealthy Loyalist at the Templeton ball (a lie that Elizabeth told her) and does not realize otherwise until she sees he cannot dance and speaks to him, learning he is an apprentice and Patriot.
  • Grandfather is completely hostile to the Patriot cause and has no softened approach, however mild, before his death. His death is rather sudden and at the plantation; it is only telegraphed by Martha's concern over him, a lack of appetite shortly before, and a mention of a fever last winter than he has not fully recovered from (rather than an illness while in Williamsburg). Because of his death that summer, he does not get to know about Penny's foal (Martha informs Felicity herself) or Polly's birth, and Mr. Merriman is the one who petitions for Mr. Cole be freed from jail in his place.
  • Felicity sees Jiggy Nye being kept in the same cell as Mr. Cole when Edward comes to talk to him instead of when delivering a store package with Elizabeth. She decides for herself to offer him kindness, rather than remaining hard-hearted until Elizabeth convinces her.
  • Marcus only works in the shop and is not shown to have any skill with horses, which is why Felicity goes to get Jiggy Nye when Penny is in labor and her father is away.
  • Patriot is brown like his mother, rather than all black.
  • Felicity gifts her completed sampler to Elizabeth as a pillow and Christmas gift, rather than handing it to her after church while her father is imprisoned.

Historical Errors and Inaccuracies[]

  • Martha asks Felicity to get more sugar (rather than ginger) at the store so she can bake Felicity's favorite birthday cake, a ginger cake. A cake at the time would not be a single oven-baked style cake as it is known in modern eras but a soft spiced cookie; "cake" at the time was a term for a small baked good. Mrs. Merriman would not have baked a modern layered cake for a child's birthday celebration, given the cost of supplies and time and lavishness of a single dessert cake. (Gingerbread cookies/cakes did exist at the time and were a popular food.)
  • Nan and William are always present at evening suppers; however as young children, they would most likely be served a private supper in the kitchen supervised by Rose or Mother, rather than be present at the table, and at larger meals with guests would still be served away from the table with any children present. Felicity is the only child considered old enough to be allowed to sit with adults at meals (though there are times she is still expected to sit with the children, such as when guests bring their own).
  • The teacups at the lessons and elsewhere have handles, and the students and Miss Manderly (as well as others having tea) sip tea directly from the cups. The English did not at the time, sip their tea directly from the cups. Tea, unlike in Asian countries, was served much hotter; handleless cups could not be cupped in the hands comfortably to sip from. Tea was instead poured into the saucers set underneath and sipped that way. Many tea cups did not have handles until the 1810s.
  • The many evening suppers that are hosted are inaccurate. At the time, the large gathering meal of the day to which guests would most likely be invited was the midday meal of dinner ("dinner" being the term for whatever the largest meal of the day was, rather than being about the time it was served), with supper generally being a small and light affair before bedtime. A midday dinner gave people time to return home if traveling. As well, rural people and farm workers--including the enslaved--would eat their largest meal midday before afternoon labors, which was done well into the twentieth century.
  • Felicity and other girls and women are seen often with hair loose around their shoulders, sometimes accented with pinner caps. Hair in the era was worn long but rarely washed and so was kept clean in day to day tasks by being pinned up under various caps such as mob caps or round or pinned-ear caps, even under other hats; pinner caps, a fashion of the 1740s and 1750s, would have been long out of fashion. Martha's hair being mostly up with a single curl down is more accurate, though she would likely put it all up under her cap for tasks such as cooking and cleaning.
  • A sermon is heard underneath Felicity's voiceover letter to Elizabeth regarding Grandfather's death. However, many Protestant people--attempting to avoid rites similar to Catholics--opted for quiet funerals with no eulogies or speeches.
  • Martha is shown putting together Felicity's blue holiday gown herself until she gives birth to Polly. However--as stated on the Holiday Gown article--Martha Merriman would not have had the highly cultivated skills to put the dress together herself as she was not a trained dressmaker; even the most well to do housewife did not have the skills for fine dressmaking unless she had been apprenticed, and Martha was never apprenticed (as she was raised to be a gentlewoman and care for the home rather than have a working woman's craft skill). Elizabeth and her mother would also not be able to finish the gown without Felicity knowing, both because of lack of dressmaking skill and because gowns of such an elaborate nature would be draped and fitted to the wearer during construction as bespoke garments unlike day wear dresses; paper patterns were not in use.
  • Mother is very sick after Polly's birth and confined to bed in semi-consciousness until the Christmas Eve Ball, leaving Felicity (and Rose) to care for Polly while she recovers. Polly is not seen with her mother until after Martha is well enough to hold her. This would be very risky for a newborn as there were no good options outside of direct nursing for feeding a newborn and--since Rose is not a wet nurse--feeding the newborn Polly would be very difficult and the young baby would have low chances of survival without the mother being in a state to at least nurse her regularly or have milk expressed.
  • At the ball, Felicity and Elizabeth perform their minuet to Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, a song which was not composed until 1787.
  • The Virginia Reel that is shown being taught and danced, in two long lines with partners, did not exist until the 1800s.
  • Christmas carolers are shown singing "Deck the Halls"; the English language version of that carol ("Nos Galen", a New Year's song from Wales) did not appear until the 1880s.
