Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a film that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott and unfolds as the author₂s alter ego, Jo March reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig₂s take, the beloved story of the March sisters, four young women each determined to live life on her own terms, is both timeless and timely.

This is a beautiful film to look at, as handsome as a magazine.
Little women is a great story and Jo (Louisa May Alcott) certainly was honest with her desire to live an independent life knowing she would also not have one of those tidy happy endings if she did and yet she got one. And it was complete with a long kiss in a downpour under an umbrella.
The March girls are all these beautiful actresses with perfect skin and the Mama is a saint from another time.
This was just all to much of a good thing that it lost my attention. But my favorite part of the movie was to be found in the special features. I recommend watching Jan Turnquist, the executive director of Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard house narrate a brief history of the house little women was written and lived in. It is very interesting.

Given the ratings, we expected MUCH more. The last few minutes were good, but the rest of this over-long movie was just meh; boring even. Disappointed, to say the least.

A garbage presentation of a beloved story. Trying to be artsy and failing miserably. For example the mother comes across as some hippie out of a new age scene. Keeping to the story line was impossible as it jumps back and forth making it hard for continuity. Don't waste your time on this "production". Read the book instead.

I was very disappointed with this adaption. Having read and deeply cherished the book I may have been more critical than some in my search for the spirit of the book in this movie. Nonetheless, I think Greta Gerwig almost completely missed the mark for the focus of the story and conveyed the true essence of the book extremely poorly.
I watched this movie with an open mind and a readiness to enjoy it if it was well done but about forty minutes in I was already ready for it to be over. Also, every scene with Laura Dern playing Marmee was pretty cringey.
Very sad this turned out the way it did.

The only version I've seen of Little Women. Gerwig surpassed her debut Lady Bird with this one. A sweet and relatable story of growing up.

A solid follow up to Lady Bird. Little Women is the only version of this story that I've seen but it succeeded in holding my interest. A great cast of actors really lets this relatable story shine.

This is the best movie ever my moms friend from work gave this movie to me i thought it was for me to keep but it was only to barrow it and my mom said she said that i'm am going to really like this movie and i did i alwasy saw it in stores but it never seem intresting to me but after watching it once i loved it i evan got my own copy on vhs and i went to see this movie in theathers it was very good i was 20 when i watched this movie the very frist time

"Overall, I looooved this movie. I really did. I love Little Women in general but I really loved this adaptation. There was something refreshing about it and I thought Greta Gerwig did a great job in adapting it for a new audience. The casting was spot on with Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh being standouts respectively."
