Little Women (1994)

In one of the best page-to-screen adaptations to ever come out of Hollywood, award-winning Australian director Gillian Armstrong beautifully brings Louisa May Alcott’s novel about love, family, and the female spirit to life. In mid-nineteenth century New England, the four March sisters and their strong-willed mother confront life’s emotional peaks and valleys over the course of several years. Featuring an all-timer of a cast, including Winona Ryder, Trini Alvarado, Kirsten Dunst, and Susan Sarandon as the close-knit clan, finely detailed sets and Oscar-nominated Colleen Atwood costuming, plus a stirring score by Thomas Newman.

“The best family film of the year!” – Janet Maslin, Newsday

“Ladies, get out your hand-hemmed handkerchiefs for the loveliest Little Women ever on screen.” – Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“This is a surprisingly sharp and intelligent telling of Louisa May Alcott’s famous story, and not the soft-edged children’s movie it might appear.” – Roger Ebert

“An outstanding version of Louisa May Alcott’s perennial, one that surpasses even the best previous rendition, George Cukor’s 1933 outing starring Katharine Hepburn.” – Todd McCarthy, Variety
