Atom User Reviews for Little Women
Great cast. Sisters at their truest self. Family love. And they read, and played and wrote. Something beautiful to see when the world is filled with phones and texting.
Love the story but the switching back & forth between times lines would be confusing if you are not a true Little Women fan.
Beautifully Done ........ Happy- Sad - Funny ..... Left just Feeling Good ...... All about Love
It is a very well done movie and the character development really has you feel for each of the characters' struggles throughout the movie. I was very pleasantly surprised on how good this movie was and I would strongly recommend it.
If first time watching this movie out of the series , don’t. Read the book first then watch the movie with Winona Ryder in it. Not a fan of how it switches back and forth between timelines. I wasn’t confused mostly due to the fact I read the book and watched the other movies second. However it did end nicely with the school scene
An amazing movie that is just as modern as it could be
I have seen 2 versions of Little Women and this movie held its own!! My 12 year old daughter and I cried together. Total must see!!!
I liked it, my 20 year old daughter LOVED it. I had not read the book, so everything was new, and occasionally overwhelming
LOVE the ending!!!! Superb cast!
Those women sure were little.
Excellent. An academy award winning movie
A big step up in scale for a writer-director who got her start in the freewheeling world of low-budget indies. Seeing her pull off a grand period drama with such confidence, humor, and style leaves you with a sensation not unlike what Jo March must be feeling in the film’s final scene, as she watches while her first book is printed, sewn, and bound, a tiny smile playing on her lips. I can’t believe it’s all finally happening, her face seems to say. I can’t wait to see what comes next.
Gerwig skillfully navigates the line between respecting the story's old-fashioned bones while illuminating the modernity of its proto-feminist perspective, only occasionally leaning into speechy advocacy of a woman's right to self-actualization beyond marriage. Her cast may be slightly bound by their canonical character types, but there's lovely ensemble work here, captained with coltish physicality and hard-charging pluck by the luminous Saoirse Ronan as Jo.
It’s only when Pugh gets her hands on spoiled younger sister Amy and opens up that often-overlooked strand of the work does the film seem to find relevance beyond its pretty fussiness and that warm, wintery – decidedly Christmassy, somewhat pleased-with-itself – glow.
