You can animate objects in Movie Mode by using the Movie Effect -> Scene Effects -> Basic Animation.
This will allow you to animate any object/s for the clip the effect is associated with, and does quick easy basic animation for moving on position, height, rotation and scale. You can later on edit things by just entering the effect again and changing the position etc.
You only have ability to set the Start and End points (no in-betweens, Ultimate has Advanced Animation for that), but quite often thats all thats needed, and in general is really quick to set up
Attached basic video demo of walking character. Note the old Tutorial 5 (see Suport Tutoriasl) does show animating a character also, but of course the interface has changed since v0.9 when it was made. There's other video etc search around on the forum.
