Description
Her life was no children's book. Louisa May Alcott's story is as full of incident, surprise, and heroism as any plot she invented; her childhood was one of high ideals, low finances, and some thirty household moves. The daughter of philosopher-educator Bronson Alcott, she was home schooled by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, served as a nurse in the Civil War, fought for women's suffrage, and lived a secret literary life as a writer of pulp fiction until "Little Women" lifted her and her family from rags to riches and literary celebrity. This first film biography of the beloved author, Louisa May Alcott : The Woman Behind 'Little Women' stars three-time Obie winner Elizabeth Marvel, and features Daniel Gerroll and Jane Alexander in a script written from primary sources and filmed in original locations. Animations and commentary by the foremost Alcott scholars, novelist Geraldine Brooks (March), and the 'literary sleuths' who uncovered Louisa's lost thrillers complete a detailed portrait that replaces the image of a New England spinster with a living, breathing, modern woman. -- pkg. back cover.
