Story about the March family of four daughters and a strong mother (Sarandon) who, because her husband is away serving in the Army during the Civil War, must raise her "little women" on her own. The daughters include: spirited Jo (Ryder) who longs for a career as a writer; beautiful and conservative older sister Meg (Alvarado); fragile Beth (Danes); and the romantic Amy (Dunst/Mathis). Through the years, as they become women, the sisters share their most cherished and painful moments of self-discovery as their mother's pride and strength guide them through questions of independence, romance and virtue.
Little Women submitted by SBNB on June 26, 2012, 7:35pm This is a great movie based off of a great book. The story is engrossing and the characters feel real. Little Women is one of the "comfort movies" that is great to watch when you need a taste of the past and when you want to feel at home.

Susan Sarandon makes a great and strong mom for this story. I have watched two of the older versions of this classic and each have their own gifts to offer the viewer. Winona Ryder as the spit-fire Jo is great. She brings just the right combination of independence and innocence to the picture. Her "acting" spots are great in her plays--too funny!
When the one sister becomes sick, by then you feel you know the whole family (except Dad who is off to war) intimately. So when she becomes very ill, you feel so sad, like one on the verge of losing a special friend.
This movie gave me insight into how difficult it was to have lived in a place of prestige in society and to have lost that place. Marmee showed her daughters that dignity and joy did not have to be based in one's position in society, nor one's financial position.
