Abstract Louisa May Alcott was no little woman, and 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. This first film biography of the beloved author of Little Women stars Elizabeth Marvel (House of Cards) in a detailed portrait that replaces the image of a New England spinster with a living, breathing, modern woman.
