Kit Kittredge: An American Girl

 (2008)

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Blu-ray features poor video and decent audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Aspiring reporter Kit Kittredge can't resist bringing home strays, whether it's Grace, an abandoned basset hound, or Will and Countee, a pair of young hobos willing to trade work for meals. Bright, inquisitive and generous, Kit is a natural born leader. But her happy childhood is abruptly interrupted when her father loses his car dealership and must leave Cincinnati to look for work. Kit and her mother Margaret are left to manage on their own, growing vegetables, selling eggs and even taking in an assortment of boarders including an itinerant magician, a vivacious dance instructor on the prowl for a husband and a zany mobile librarian. When a crime spree sweeps Cincinnati, all signs point to the local hobo jungle, where Will and Countee live with a group of their impoverished companions. Kit, who always has her antennae out for a good news story, convinces her new friends to take her to see the hobo camp for herself and writes an article that creates a sympathetic portrait of the camp's residents. But when Kit's mother and their boarders become the latest victims in a string of robberies, Kit's loyalties are tested. Will is accused of the crimes and, with all of their savings gone, the Kittredges face losing their house to foreclosure. Determined to recover the stolen money and believing Will is innocent, Kit recruits her friends Ruthie and Stirling to help her track down the real culprit. Together they uncover a plot that goes far beyond Cincinnati!

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p and utilizing the VC-1 codec (with an average bitrate around 18 MBPS), Kit Kittredge: An American Girl is a largely disappointing visual experience from start to finish, with detail rarely demonstrating a high-definition experience. There are still occasional scenes that look considerably better than others (mostly facial close-ups), but the majority of the film has a visual quality that barely bests the detail present in an upconverted DVD. On the positive side, black levels are fairly solid (with the exception of a soup kitchen scene early in the film), with only a slight loss of shadow detail here and there. Colors appear appropriate to the source material, with a golden hue that gives the film a slightly aged appearance and I'm pleased to report a complete lack of digital imperfections such as edge-enhancement, artifacting, or the application of DNR. Overall, the visual quality of the transfer left a lot to be desired, but is still good enough to not be a distraction (especially to the younger viewers this film is aimed at).


Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The sole audio track on this Blu-ray release is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1. Kitt Kittredge is loaded with upbeat period music that harkens back to the Depression era, but that is about all you will hear from your rear surrounds throughout the feature. Other than the music, dialogue is the primary component of the audio track and is located solely in front portion of your sound field. I don't expect the audio on a film like this to compare with an action film, but I do pay attention to the clarity of the dialogue and the presence of subtle ambient noise to create an immersive experience. Thankfully, the dialogue levels were appropriately balanced with the music, so I don't have any complaints there. Rather, my complaints are with the lack of surround use as a whole and the missing precision I believe would have been possible with a lossless track. Depending on the source material, a lossless track may not have helped with the use of surrounds (unless it was able to draw out more subtle environmental noise that was lost in the compression of the Dolby Digital track); but I do believe a lossless track could have offered an improvement with the music and dialogue. I'm less disappointed with the audio than I was with the transfer, but not by much.
