The Ballad of Little Jo

Directed by Maggie Greenwald

Release: 1993
Runtime: 121
Country: U.S.
Language: English

Acclaimed writer-director Maggie Greenwald (Songcatcher) adds a modern twist to the classic western in The Ballad of Little Jo, starring Suzy Amis (Two Small Bodies, Blown Away, The Usual Suspects) in a trailblazing performance. After bearing an illegitimate child, society girl Josephine Monaghan (Amis) leaves home in disgrace. On the road west, she discovers that a woman alone is sexual prey for any man—so she disguises herself as a boy. As Little Jo, she confronts all the dangers the Wild West has to offer—from deadly winters to murderous outlaws. But her most treacherous enemy is her own heart—when she risks everything by falling in love with the one man who discovers her secret. Featuring dynamic supporting turns by Bo Hopkins, Ian McKellen, David Chung, Heather Graham, Anthony Heald, Melissa Leo, René Auberjonois and Carrie Snodgress, this gorgeously crafted film inspired by a true story proves that our heroes have sometimes been…cowgirls.
