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.

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

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.

I liked it, my 20 year old daughter LOVED it. I had not read the book, so everything was new, and occasionally overwhelming

Perfectly fine. If you’ve seen the first three (which I have -many times) it’s not that amazing. But young viewers who’ve never seen Katharine Hepburn, June Allison and Winona Rider play Jo will probably really love it. I just found myself in comparison mode. It is well-acted and rather lovely. And it’s shot beautifully. It’s worth seeing.

I could totally relate to Jo's character as the sister who thinks differently, is adventuresome, like to write, and not so girly girl. Then there's Amy the bratty sister who wanted and mostly got everything Jo had. Reminds me of the relationship between my sister and me.

I liked the way that little women story is modified, trying to connect with concerns of conventional women that still impacts lifestyle of modern women. I also loved going back and forth in time in different scenes of the movie.

If you are a fan of little women you can understand it. But someone new to Little Women would have a hard time following. A lot of flashbacks and flash forwards.

i love this movie, and to think it was written at a period of candlelight and ink is just amazing. women still feels the same way, that we are unequally treated when compared to men, but it's definitely getting better compared to the era depicted in this movie, and hopefully even better for the next generation to come.

My only genuine complaint about this film is that its music is too non-diegetic. "Little Women" is intimate and its locations most often small, yet the strings that accompany the work remain kinda' large and echoing.

It’s still a very relevant story and hard to believe women still deal with the same issues. One day humanity will evolve but sad to say not in my lifetime

Good movie to see to get away from all the CGI fest. The constant flashbacks give me a headache but other than that it was a good movie. Recommend.

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.
