Louisa May Alcott’s beloved and enduring young adult classic (a semi-autobiographical account of her own childhood) tells the moving story of the four March sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy – who must learn the hard lessons of life growing up poor in New England during the Civil War. Filmmaker George Cuckor (My Fair Lady, A Star is Born) applied his expert touch as Hollywood’s legendary “women’s picture” director-par-excellence to this hit 1933 adaptation starring the great Katherine Hepburn as the iconic tomboy, Jo. Winner of the 1934 Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. (Dir. by George Cuckor, 1933, USA, 115 mins., Not Rated) Digital
