This is a great remake of the classic little women. It incorporates both of the books ‘Little Women’ and ‘Good Wives’ and is a good overview of both. You really become attached to the characters in the movie. It has an awesome cast that are able to bring the books to life in a heartfelt and pretty convincing way. Though you can't beat the books, this really is good viewing for all ‘Little Women’ fans.
"The flaws are easily forgiven in this beautiful version of Louisa May Alcott's novel. A stirring look at life in New England during the Civil War, Little Women is a triumph for all involved. We follow one family as they split into the world, ending up with the most independent, the outspoken Jo (Winona Ryder). This time around, the dramatics and conclusions fall into place a little too well, instead of finding life's little accidents along the way. Everyone now looks a bit too cute and oh, so nice. As the matron, Marmee, Susan Sarandon kicks the film into a modern tone, creating a movie alive with a great feminine sprit. Kirsten Dunst (Interview with the Vampire) has another showy role. The young ensemble cast cannot be faulted, with Ryder beginning the movie in a role akin to light comedy and crescendoing to a triumphant end worthy of an Oscar."--Doug Thomas
