Louisa May Alcott's classic novel comes to life in this film starring Mariel Hemingway as the matriarch of a rural family in the late 1800's. Two troubled boys join the house, one fits in fine but the other can't leave behind his city ways. Adult Juror Comments: Well produced, beautiful footage, good costumes, provokes insight into human nature and empathy toward others. Demonstrates powerful moral lessons. Kid Juror Comments: Makes children think about the consequences of their actions.
