Louisa May Alcott was a tomboy, as was her heroine, Jo March, in Little Women. But Jo, like most literary tomboys, was tamed once she reached adolescence. Real-life tomboys tell a different story. In this lively, inspiring documentary, interviews with African-American teenager Jay Gillespie, firefighter Tracy Driscoll, lesbian artist Nancy Brooks Brody, and political activist "Granny D" are intercut with personal photographs and archival footage to celebrate tomboys of all ages. The connection between the rebel girl and the spirited woman is gloriously clear. Their tales of energy and enterprise are a revelation to us all.
