"Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, the four March sisters learn about love, life, and loss as they grow through their young womanhood against the backdrop of post-Civil War America. At the heart of the family is the headstrong Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) who aspires, above all else, to forge her own path. Directed by Greta Gerwig, co-starring Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, and Laura Dern. "
There has been 3 versions of this film made, and this is the one to watch! Greta Gerwig has taken the classic book and turned it into the best film version of it yet! I guess it just took a woman's vision.
The film is about the 4 young March sisters who are all out to live life on their own terms. The story centers around Jo March played by Saoirse Ronan who turns in an outstanding performance. Jo wants to be a writer. Her other sisters are played wonderfully by Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, and Eliza Scanlen. Supporting players are Laura dean, Meryl Streep, and Timothee Chalamet.
This is a worthwhile film to see, and I strongly recommend it!
I really enjoyed this latest adaptation of Little Women. The performances were great all around. They were able to find new ways of telling the story while staying true to the novel.
The 1080p video looked good to my eyes. I don't think there is a 4K version available, yet. While this is not a movie with bombastic sound effects, the DTS-MA audio provided a nice soundscape and good surround usage when called for. Dialogue was always clear and natural.
The extras are kind of the usual EPK type short documentaries but not too bad. There are 6 of them that total ~50 minutes. I wish there were an audio commentary with the Director or the cast but this is still a solid release.
I love this movie. It was about a simpler time, but this version illustrated more clearly what women were up against if they wanted to do something other than get married and have kids, the only options most women had. The main female character had talents, knowledge and opinions that weren't popular to share during that time period....but she did. Her success and strong stance in a man's world at that time made this movie very engaging and uplifting.
My wife and I were able to see this movie in our local movie theater and were happy we were able to purchase it at a good price from BestBuy and really enjoyed watching it and we are looking forward to watching it as often as we want.
If you ever loved a Jane Austen film, you will LOVE “Little Women.” This movie is filled with so much love, laughter, drama and sadness. If you’re unfamiliar with the book or other renditions, then you will fall in love with all of the characters, and root for them throughout their struggles and triumphs. This movie is a must see.
