With the 92nd Oscars just two weeks away on Sunday, February 9, 2020, Massachusetts is inviting the world to visit the Bay State and explore the locations of LITTLE WOMEN, which has garnered six Academy Award nominations.
Filmed entirely in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Little Women comes to life in a score of impeccably preserved historical locations and landscapes. In honour of this, the Massachusetts Film Office has created a film tourism map featuring these classic sites, which can be visited and enjoyed today. Locations include the cities and towns of Boston, Canton, Concord, Franklin, Groton, Harvard, Ipswich, Lancaster, Lawrence, Stoughton and Waltham.
Writer-director Greta Gerwig’s 2019 adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s beloved story, Little Women, is both timeless and timely. The film draws on the classical novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott who hails from Concord, Massachusetts. The heart of the story is centered on Orchard House, the actual home of the Alcott family who lived in the house until 1877. A visit to Orchard House provides heartwarming and inspirational accounts of the talented Alcott family who were also tireless advocates of social justice and creative individuality.
The film is nominated for Oscars in the following categories:
