QUICK TAKE:
Drama: An aspiring novelist draws on her prior experiences with her sisters and others over the years as source material for her latest work.
PLOT:
Jo March (SARAH DAVENPORT) is a 29-year-old woman who lives in Queens with her great Aunt March (BARTA HEINER). Ever since she was a young kid growing up (as played by AIMEE LYNNE JOHNSON) with her sisters -- Meg (CLAIRE COVEY), Beth (REESE OLIVEIRA), and Amy (JANE MILLER) -- and cared for by their mom, Marmee (LEA THOMPSON), while their dad (BART JOHNSON) was overseas as a military medic, Jo has wanted to a be a writer. And not just any writer, but one whose work would live on after her death.

So far, however, she's faced constant rejection but at least one professor, Freddy (IAN BOHEN), has offered to help her through his critiques of her latest drafts, saying she should include her personal experiences in her work. She believes nothing's happened so far in her life, but as we see various flashbacks to her earlier years -- both as a young kid and then as a teen along with Beth (ALLIE JENNINGS), Meg (MELANIE STONE), and preteen Amy (ELISE CLAIRE JONES at that age, and TAYLOR MURPHY as a young adult later) -- the evidence suggests otherwise.

That includes when teenager Laurie (LUCAS GRABEEL) moved into the neighborhood to live with his wealthy grandfather, Mr. Lawrence (MICHAEL FLYNN), following the car accident deaths of his parents, and was tutored by John Brooke (STUART EDGE), thus drawing the attention of the March girls. As the story jumps back and forth through various periods of the sisters' lives, we see how their relationships with each other and those outside the family evolve, all of which ultimately provides source material for Jo's latest work.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Tween and some teen girls might be interested as it's a movie about sisters, while fans of anyone in the cast or the source novel might also be drawn to it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some thematic elements and teen drinking.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
