Product Description

This 90s update of the classic Civil War tale follows the lives of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, four sisters left at home with their mother during the war. Hardships abound but the girls always retain hope and their strong family loyalty as each grows in her own way into a 'little woman'. Starring Winona Ryder, Clare Danes and Susan Sarandon.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 crescendos to a triumphant end worthy of an Oscar. --Doug Thomas

This movie is a truly heartwarming, emotional and touching story about the lives and loves of 4 sisters, who have been left poor while their father has gone off to fight in the American Civil War. There is no limit to the number of the times I can watch this film, and I can be sure that every time I do I'll be moved to tears! One of the things I like most about this film is the score - the music is what will make you cry, and really gives it a great sense of atmosphere. The acting is brilliant, my heart breaks every time I watch Laurie's proposal scene! If you like romance, period drama, or just a really good story, this is for you, buy it today!
PS. Gabriel Byrne is hot in this. (!!!)

absolutely adored this remake of the classic story Little Women. I thought the whole movie was superb and perfectly cast and am really glad this remake was done. It was a great night at the movies.

Watching this movie made me enraptured with this time period and made me also want to know these people. The story wasn't changed and the movie's warmth and gentleness were still as luminous as ever. No flashiness at all just magnificent storytelling and it was really superb to see.

With so many movies oriented toward violence, anger, brutality etc Little Women is a breath of fresh air. I love all types of movies but where would we be without an occasional heartwarming, uplifting(at times) classic like this?

Everyone was flawless in this but I must single out Danes, Sarrandon and one of my favorites Ms Winona! (Who else but Winona could have played Jo?).

If you haven't seen this yet you certainly should. Little women is another classic that never gets old. This remake is Absolute perfection !

It was intriguing to see this much-acclaimed version of the well-loved classic. Despite being a rather glossy adaptation of a rather detailed book, the film does an excellent job of really exploring the characters. Winona Ryder plays an endearing and rather believable Jo alongside a great cast including a painfully likeable Marmee (Susan Sarandon.) Filled with heart warming family scenes and picturesque childhood memories, this is an admirable account of those difficult decisions and choices women have to make throughout their lives. Not a film to watch if you want action and excitement but never the less a brilliant film that for once does the novel justice.

Format: DVD
Over the years there's been a few attempts at filming this well-loved story of four sisters growing up in New England during the American Civil War, but this is by far the best version.
You can always find fault with a film adaptation of a familiar book, things always get left out or changed to fit the format, and this one is no different: Beth's relationship with old Mr Laurence next door has been completely ignored, for instance. And it's Hollywood, after all, so everything's a bit too shiny and everyone's a bit too good-looking.
That said, I don't think you could improve much on this. The casting is superb - all four sisters are just as I pictured them. In particular, Winona Ryder (not an actress I normally admire) is the perfect Jo, and Kirsten Dunst the perfect Amy (it's a shame she had to grow up, and another actress had to take over). A young Christian Bale (much nicer than the older version) is an endearing Laurie. Susan Sarandon, as Marmee, and Gabriel Byrne, as Professor Bhaer, can't help being a bit too glamorous for their roles, but it doesn't matter, they play them just right.
It's a very beautiful film to look at, and it's heartwarming, funny and touching: you'd have to have a heart of stone to resist it. But it's not a sentimental fairy tale. This is a sweet and loving family (even Amy!) but a it's real one, with real problems to overcome - there's a hard edge to this story.
I read the books many times as a teenager years ago, and I've just watched the DVD with my daughters, who had never heard of them - we were all entranced.
So give it a try - it's a welcome break if you've been watching a lot of films like Sex and The City or Bridesmaids recently - and get ready to laugh and cry throughout. It's just lovely.

Format: DVD
Louisa May Alcott's book has come to life in vivid detail and beauty. The casting is superb. The four sisters are a pleasure to watch and view as they develop into young ladies who experience both the pleasures and pains of growing into adulthood. The film depicts the changes in each character from adolescence and the growing pains associated with making independent decisions based on their personalities and values. As young ladies with education who grew up in a household where their opinions were heard and mattered, they stand in direct contrast with the majority of girls growing up at that time ...

In the attic, the sisters enact all the parts of a play which Jo had written ... it was a great moment when they invited Theodore Lawrence into their circle of friends. The individuality of each sister is quite evident. The film does a fine job of presenting each character, Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy as unique individuals who blossom, each into her own personality, when they are forced to make choices and deal with building their own lives. The film shows the flow of everyday life around the time of the Civil War, when their father was serving as a soldier. The film does a wonderful job of showing the social structure and class differences of the era. The language, speech and manners of the times are well acted ...

The close bonds of sisterhood are threatened by Beth's illness, and eventual death. The film presents Jo, Meg and Amy as they develop into responsible adults with independent lives and interests apart from the cocoon of the family. Meg's courtship and eventual marriage to a school teacher/tutor is done well, especially the birth of their twins.
