This story takes place at the beginning of the American Revolutionary War in Boston. Johnny Tremain is a fictional character that was there for the Boston Tea Party and fought at the Battle of Lexington and Concord. It was interesting for us to watch this movie as we recently returned from a trip to these exact locations. If you wanted to show a movie to your kids about the start of the Revolutionary War, I think this would be a good one. It may get boring for young kids, but overall, it’s not too bad.
