Little Women
Story about the March family of four daughters and a strong mother 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 who longs for a career as a writer; beautiful and conservative older sister Meg; fragile Beth; and the romantic Amy. 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.

I liked that they made their attitudes a bit more modern as compared to the novel.

Enjoyed watching this movie again. Wanted to watch it after reading - March - earlier in the year.

More languid and less tension than the book. Shot hereabouts: you can spot some locations if you look carefully. (Berlin work would not be done in a hoop.)

The cast does a pretty good job of restraint considering the fluffy, melodramatic sentimentality of the plot. Gabriel Byrne's miscasting as Friedrich Bhaer spoils the ending.
