CGiii Comment

Based on a true story...
 
Greenwald does herself proud...a deeply touching portrayal of a character that could have easily become a caricature.
 
Beautifully shot, sensitively seen and tears will flow.

The(ir) Blurb...

Based on a true story, this is the tale of Josephine Monaghan, a young woman of the mid-nineteenth century who is thrown out of her parents' home after being seduced by the family's portrait photographer and giving birth to his child. Josephine quickly learns that young, female, pretty, and alone are a bad combination for life in the wild west. In her desperation to survive, Josephine disguises herself as "Jo", a young man, and struggles to make a life for herself in a dingy frontier mining town. Can "Little Jo" live and love without revealing his secret?
