An outstanding version of Louisa May Alcott's perennial, one that surpasses even the best previous rendition, George Cukor's 1933 outing starring Katharine Hepburn.

Come early to sample baked goods inspired by Little Women!
A moving story of strength, fortitude, and sisterhood. Don’t miss this beloved adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel – starring 90s icons Winona Ryder, Claire Danes and Kirsten Dunst as the fearless, imaginative March women. With their father away at war, prim Meg, wild Jo, kindhearted Beth and spirited (and sometimes selfish) Amy support each other, pursue education, seek careers, and find love, all while bucking 19th century restrictions on women’s comport. A wondrous tale of friendship and adventure, Little Women is a feminist story that remains as inspiring as it was when it was written in 1868.
