What Katy Did

Based on the classic novel by Susan M. Coolidge and told in the tradition of Anne of Green Gables, What Katy Did is a warm family drama that tells the story of Katy Carr (Alison Pill), a headstrong 13-year-old growing up in the countryside at the turn of the century. Katy's feisty streak and mischievous antics try the patience of her widowed dad, Dr. Philip Carr (Kevin Whately), and her stern Aunt Izzie (Martha Burns), who share the responsibility of raising Katy and her siblings.

Katy's outlook begins to change, however, with the arrival of her ill cousin Helen (Megan Follows), who exposes Katy to a world she never knew existed. Then, when a tragic accident confines Katy to her room, she gains strength from Helen's wisdom and a renewed zest for life.

Dove Worldview:

This is a heartwarming movie with a terrific cast! Alison Pill is outstanding as Katy Carr, the teen girl that is full of life and brings laughter to her Aunt Helen (fabulously played by Megan Follows) who needs the laughs as she is quite ill and bound to a wheelchair. Helen says about Katy: "She's the perfect tonic." Rounding out this fine cast is Kevin Whately as Katy's father, Martha Burns as her Aunt Izzie and Dean Stockwell.

Kay is an energetic teen girl who is prone to accidents but there is never a dull moment when she is around. When an accident alters Katy's life she finds the courage to go on from her Aunt Helen. This heartwarming story is Dove Approved for all ages and earns five Doves from us our highest rating.
