The best version of the all.

I love this movie, I've recently seen the new 2019 version and although I enjoyed it and there were some new angles explored. This version remains my favourite. I think Winona Ryder makes the perfect Jo. I also liked that they had 2 actors playing Amy (a younger and older version). Also Susan Sarandon makes a really good marmie, with more substance. I say if you've watched the new version and haven't already seen this one give it a try, you will enjoy it.

Brilliant adaptation.

I first saw this film over 20 years ago in the cinema so when I saw it on Prime I thought I'd take a walk down memory lane. So glad I did. What a beautifully made film. Very faithful to the books which hasn't always been the case with movie versions. A great cast, wonderful production and a lovely score. Also shows Marmee as the free thinking feminist which she is in the book and I loved that. Keep the Kleenex handy! A total triumph which hasn't dated at all. Love, love, love it!

Excellent feel-good movie, true to the classic book
Verified purchase
I love this movie! I don't know how many times I read Little Women as a child and young teen. It's easily in the dozens. There's a good reason it is considered a classic book; read it if you haven't already. And this film is an excellent adaptation, beautifully styled and well cast. I especially love Winona Ryder as Jo. It was several years since I last watched it, and was in need of some nostalgia. It didn't disappoint; just as good as it was when it was made 20? years ago. And now, as a woman who named one of her baby boys Laurie after this very novel, I love it just as much as ever.

So true to the story, I wished it could have gone on for hours.

Apart from making it longer, I can't think what they could have done to improve on this version of the novel. Perfect casting - who wouldn't believe that Winona Ryder really is Jo March or could think of a better personification of "Marmee" than Susan Sarandon? Beautiful scenery and, where it couldn't have been filmed in authentic places, certainly looked as you'd imagined they would have done. Stuck faithfully to the original plot (though obviously had to cut out substantial chunks but did that well). Did justice to the weepy bits, the tense bits and managed not to make the March family look horribly pious. Well worth buying whether or not you've read the book.

Good but not as engaging as 1994/5 version
Verified purchase
I loved the 1994 version with Susan Sarandon and Winona Ryder, even though it is a little cloying in places. This version is worth watching but some aspects make it less enjoyable and engaging. The switching back and forth between time lines is annoying and spoils the flow of the story. The actor playing Laurie/Teddy is nowhere near as well characterised and lacked depth, strength and development. Beth’s character is almost completely lost in this version, she is such a catalyst for some of the events and reactions of the other sisters that the lack of attention to her part and role in developments, is a gap in the storyline that undermines the rest of the film. Saiorse Ronan is excellent but you never see the development of her relationship with Prof Berh, so the final outcome of their path doesn’t sit well or make as much sense as it should. If someone could only take the best of both these movies and slot them together you would have a perfect representation of the book and a truly engaging and up to date version.

a little too sweet

It will be interesting to see the new version of this story. It does need to be spiced up a bit to suit a modern audience. The old film is lovely, but it is like a Christmas fairytale, too good to be true.

CLASSIC REMAKE DVD
Verified purchase
HOME VIEWING ON LARGE SCREEN TV. IT WAS A FAIR EFFORT AND WINONA WAS PERFECT. IN HER ROLE, BUT WE HAD DIFFICULTY WITH SOME OF THE SOUND TRANSFER. We found it often difficult to follow in Alcott's plot and dialogue, which was a great shame as it is a long film and with a varying time frame and locations within. OK but slightly disappointing we felt after the effort taken with the locations and period costuming

I loved it!

I loved the book, and I love this adaptation, which I've seen several times. The characters are all portrayed as I'd imagined them (so often, this isn't the case) and the ending is perfect. (The material is taken from both Little Women, and Good Wives.)
