Louisa May Alcott's autobiographical account of her life with her three sisters in Concord, Massachusetts in the 1860s. With their father fighting in the American Civil War, sisters Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth are at home with their mother, a very outspoken women for her time. The story tells of how the sisters grow up, find love and find their place in the world.
In the scene where Mrs. March withdraws Amy from the school, Amy is shown eating what are clearly fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. The chocolate chip cookie was not invented until 1930, more than half a century after the Civil War. See more »

A film so beautiful, lovely, and true that it will remain in your heart long after. All the parts played flawlessly, a location which is evocative of Alcott's beloved Concord, Massachusetts. Family life at its best. I highly recommend this film and the book written by Louisa May Alcott. They are timeless classics.
