Little Women

Little Women Summary and Synopsis

Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on their own terms – is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March. Four sisters come of age in America in the aftermath of the Civil War. Little Women Wiki

- Beautifully done but Not my favorite3 star

I love the ambitation, music, customs. Great acting as well. I still prefer the Winona Ryder's 1994 version. That 1994 version is told as it was cemented in my 9yr old mind when I read it first.

- Nope....1 star

I have watched every version of Little Women and this is my least liked of them all. This beautiful classic has been ripped apart and put back together in such a fragmented, non linear way that the viewer never understands the beauty of the original story....that of growing into your true self and talents based heavily on the lives of the Alcotts. Pretty sure Louisa May Alcott is turning in her grave seeing what has been done to the book that made her famous. The actress playing Amy is poorly cast with her deep manly voice, Saoirse also miscast with blonde locks, blue eyes for Jo and too mumbling. Emma Watson would have made a good Meg, if they had directed her better and kept the storyline closer to the novel. Overall avoid and watch the earlier version for the true spirit and charm of this beloved classic.

- The original was better3 star

Although, I do love to see some of the new actors/actresses, the old version was much better. The ease of that version and following along in order, plus the actresses/actors were much better chosen. Laura Dern is a wonderful actress but does not fulfill the part of Marmie as well as Susan Sarandon. Aside from Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson and Meryl Streep, the remainder of the cast seems ill fit in there rolls. The original, chose the right actor/actresses for the parts and they brought those characters to life. I wanted to love this movie but couldn’t.

- Terrible Adaptation2 star

This was a terrible adaptation that did not do the classic story justice. The biggest thing wrong is that the movie is not in chronological order. It is hard to follow, and you don't see the characters grow and develop. Also, some of the casting choices are questionable. Not worth your time-if you want to see a good version, watch the one starring Winonna Ryder.

- WE STAN!5 star


- One of my favorite films.5 star

It’s fun. It’s lively. I love the choices Greta makes as well as how interesting it all comes together. It breathes new life into this classic tale.

- Amazing!!!5 star

A must see movie!! If you love Little Women you will love this remake. It’s classy, modern and so AMAZING

- super boring1 star

redone to death, husband and I stopped watching after 30 minutes, and I am the fan of Little Women of all times. I guess there's a limit as to how often you can tell the same story.

- Weak2 star

Despite Gerwig's ferocious attempts to strip the fantastic source material of it's signature charm, some light does manage to shine through this mess in the form of those plot points left unchanged.

- Ehhh2 star

Boring. Does not compare to the original.

- Boring1 star

The 1994 version is so so much better. The actresses in this version don’t fit their roles. There is no heart to this film and it doesn’t do the great novel justice. Don’t buy this, watch the 1994 version.

- A true gem5 star

A wonderful adaptation of a book from my childhood. Love all the actors, great chemistry all around. Outstanding!!

- Flashbacks2 star

I hate that they did all of this in flashbacks. You had no emotional connection with the characters. I thought all of the people were miscast. I love Timothee Chalamet but he just was wrong in this part. It’s Little Women not Call Me By Your Name. Bizarre direction that was totally out of character for the time.

- Meh2 star

I've seen all of the versions of Little Women and this was the most vapid version. Most of the acting was horrid with two exceptions, Meryle Streep was great, and there was a scene with Ronan and Chalamet in the field that was really good. Otherwise, the film was very weak in a lot of areas. The cinematography was nothing special, the sets and costumes were good. But, overall, not the most passionate version of these films.


FRIDAY APRIL 8 25 (2021)

- Beautiful, poetic, & enamoring5 star

I was introduced to Louisa May Alcott’s characters of “Little Women”, through Greta’s beautiful adaption of the novel. I have never quite related to a film as I have done with Little Women. I don’t know if it’s the characters, the actors, the nostalgia for childhood, the comparisons to it’s adult counterpart, or just the little women themselves. It was a cathartic experience to see in the theaters & I can not wait to feel the emotion of it every time I revisit. It had a way of not only making you reflect on ones own past, but almost reliving yours alongside the characters as they do. I’ve seen it thrice now and every time has been just as enchanting, if not more, than before. Brava ! To the whole cast, thank you for this collaborative beautiful work of art.

- 45 mins of my life I’ll never get back1 star

I have no idea what everyone is talking about. This movie is beyond boring and no need for it. I barely made it through the first 45 mins. My partner and I could not possibly imagine what we would get out of it. Like who cares? People must have been real desperate to find this entertaining

- Beautiful movie5 star

This movie is brilliantly written and just simply beautiful. It takes a story written over 150 years ago and makes it relevant even today. The acting is amazing and the film never lags. I just sat for a few minutes after it was done and thought. One of the best films I’ve seen in a long time.

- Brilliant Update on Little Women!5 star

I wasn’t really sure if the new version would be as good the 1984 version. But, boy was I wrong! I felt the flashbacks brought an emotional feel to the film, especially during the Beth March scenes. The ending added a very nice touch, more than the 1984 version. As for the cast, Saoirse Ronan and Timothy Chalamet were just perfect as Jo and Laurie. 👍🏻

- Trouble sleeping?1 star

I just couldn't get to sleep at night. Then I found this movie. Now I sleep fine. Thanks Hollywood!

- Reincarnated Little Women5 star

You can’t compare this to the past remakes. This is it’s own. While the directing and storytelling is different from the past the characters feel like the characters you grew up with. So proud of this movie, not everyone could pull something like this off.

- Perfectly amazing!5 star

I am a 70 year old romantic who has always thought classic romances were unnecessarily tragic. This is perfect, absolutely perfect. Janiemomma

- Ehh2 star

I really was looking forward to this... but was disappointed after seeing it. The 90’s movie is way better. I hate how this one goes back and forth from past and present. Laura dern was just way to happy, susan Sarandon played the role much better, along with the rest of the 90’s cast.

- Absolutely perfect5 star

I adored this film. Greta does it again.

- one of my all time favorite films!5 star

this film is really amazing! the acting is phenomenal, the costumes are beautiful, and the script is beautifully written! plus the cast is perfect! i love this film!

- Or Just Write A New Story1 star

Little Women did not need a woke, meta, 2019 #MeToo version. Or any new version at all. This book has been made and re-made to death. If you want to change the story, just make a new movie with new characters not based on a 150 year-old novel about traditional gender roles, the centrality of religion in the family, and Victorian-era American values.

- Emotional, nostalgic, INTELLIGENT5 star

Gerwig is on another level of intertwining memory, nostalgia, compassion, complexity & EMOTIONS. Both lady bird & little women are whirlwinds of beauty 💞💞💞💞

- AMAZING!!!5 star

This is the BEST movie I have ever seen in my life! I especially loved the whole flash back thing. The actors were phenomenal! This movie was truly incredible. BEST MOVIE EVER! I have to disagree with everyone who wrote a bad review on this movie. Jo, Amy, Meg, and Beth were amazing! I preordered it the day after I saw it and have been counting down the days until I can watch it at home.

- Love it5 star


- Love it5 star

I saw this movie more than once and I’ve been dying to own this movie and I’ve been doing some research on this.

- Awesome!!5 star


- greta gerwig5 star

the story was put across as if it you were there

- *Sigh*2 star

I was really looking forward to this movie; but it had no heart at all! And it didn’t feel like a movie but rather a bundle of events. The 1994 version had way more spirit. This movie was just BLAND.

- Best adaptation for little women hands down!5 star

I got to be honest I wasn’t interested seeing this movie at first but with great reviews I had to check it out and you know what I loved it such a great story ,cast, score etc I can’t stop thinking how great this movie is I highly recommend this 2019 adaptation because it deserves to be watched from everyone it a definite must buy!!!!

- ❤️💕5 star


- Wonderful 12 Times Over5 star

I fell in love with this film. It was my daughters first adult movie with me, she is an only child but has never seen anything more than a animated film. With how much she enjoyed it in mind, we booked presale tickets to Into The Wild. She’s also started watching some Jane Austen dramas in the same vein as this with me, and we really enjoyed them. Thank you for a lovely mother daughter bonding afternoon, a performance by Saiorse Ronan that was an absolute treat to watch, and a touching screenplay that stresses the importance of girl power.

- Best movie of the year5 star

Hooked from beginning to end.

- Amazing.5 star


- Eh2 star

I was expecting a lot more. This has nothing on the 1994 movie and soundtrack. This movie isn't bad, but wasn't impressed.

- Masterpiece5 star

Better than the original

- Flawless5 star

Sure, their have been a few Little Women remakes, but this is unlike any of them. The dialogue, the structure, the acting is phenomenal. Saoirse Ronan gives the best female performance of 2019. And Florence Pugh is one to watch. Do yourself a favor and BUY this film.

- again1 star

did we need this?

- Absolutely brilliant film making.5 star

This is seriously one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. The acting is impeccable from the whole cast and the story is beautiful told.

- New Favorite5 star

I was in love with this movie. The connection between Timothee Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan was amazing. This movie had me in tears , gave me laughs and made me smile. Definitely recommend this movie. I have already preordered it!

- OH MY GOODNESS!!5 star

i went to go see little women yesterday and i was in awe!! it was absolutely stunning!!! a great cast, great music, great scenery, great script. it was never dry or boring and made it seem more like an adventure than a boring old old-timey tale. i can’t wait for it to come to buy or to see on netflix, i will definitely watch it a 1000 times! 10/10 recommend

- It was just amazing!!!5 star

It had all great actors that played there characters very well. And it was a very thought out movie. A must watch!

- Well Worth the Watch!5 star

The movie had the same wonderful plot as the book and movies before it, but the little twists and the ending made it special. I loved it and would definitely recommend it (especially to little women fans!).

- Extraordinary Film!!5 star

I absolutely loved this take on the little women, as I, myself - grew up with the 1994 adaptation of the novel. I would say that this (2019) film was probably one the best adaptations I’ve ever seen!!! Each of scenes well described within the novel and touched briefly within the 1994 movie really came to life in the scenes by the descriptiveness and emotions within each of the well produced cast members. I found pretty the entire cast to be such grand presentations of the March family as well as timothée chalamet playing Laurie/teddy I thought he did amazing in this film! Definitely one of greats I would say! Most pleased with this style and the foreshadowing to past scenes was well created and I loved every bit of it! Watching this production gave me good laughs and tears and honestly I would say felt like I was firsthand at and with the cast while watching the movie! Brava to the cast members what a well versed showing the school & printing the book - Overall adapting the novel to this film & picking such great cast members [each of actresses and actors within the film fit perfectly for the characters roles] so eloquently was most enthusiastically perfect to view within the audience! Will definitely recommend to anybody who loved the novel will love this new adaptation of the film!

- Nope 👎2 star

This is not 1 of the better remakes. Rent the 1 with Susan Sarandon it’s a lot better

This movie brings a new vibrancy to this classic story. It’s full of energy. Saoirse Ronan is masterful as Jo. Florence Pugh delights as Amy. Timothée Chalamet sparkles as Laurie. The rest of the cast is wonderful with Chris Cooper’s performance especially touching. The movie is visually stunning. The score is exquisite. Congratulations Greta Gerwig!

Matthew Leal - This movie it was very good movie and outstanding movie 🎥.5 star

Hey everyone, my movie review is Little Women (2019) i’ll be give that movie about 10 out of 10. I went to Cinema 6 in Stephenville, Texas to see This movie Little Women (2019) was about Great presentation of a classic story and skillfully adapted to the screen. Excellent casting is part of the success of this film as well as superb cinematography. It’s very Good movie, great acting, very exciting, and entertaining.

I would highly recommended this movie to everyone. I enjoyed this movie and looking forward to buy this movie.

Skimtheocean - Bravo to Greta Gerwig4 star

I will say Greta blocked a beautiful film and has an eye for laying out the scenes. However, I still hold a candle to the 1994 version faithfully. Winona brings dimension to Jo and shows a wider range of emotions than Saoirse even though I’m such a fan of hers in Brooklyn and Ladybird. Florence Pugh earned a lot of praise but I felt she was dry and flat where Kirsten Dunst was much more animated. I’m sorry Susan Sarandon is Marne and that’s that.

willaclare - Just Spectacular5 star

Wow. I cried, laughed out loud, and held hands with loved ones throughout this movie. Greta Gerwig chose a fantastic cast and the story is even more beautiful than I remembered!!! There is a deep sincerity and genuinity to the multidimensional characters and a timeless sweetness about this film. It is definitely one I plan on watching again and again over the years...

TheRecklessLoveofGod - Laurie’s not as big of a player as I thought5 star

I’ve seen the original, I’ve seen almost all of them actually, but none are as brilliant as this one!! Though the fact that it goes from present time to past time to present to past is slightly annoying, the movie was well done! Timothée was an AMAZING Laurie (better than Christian Bale might I add) and Jo was done brilliantly too. They also made Laurie look like less of a player in this version. The one I recently watched with Bale in it made Laurie look like he just wanted to do one of the March sisters and he didn’t care which. But, overall, this movie was a beautiful and emotional masterpiece that has never been portrayed so perfectly.

Smk200 - Timeless classic5 star

I love this story! To be honest, I was in the middle of the book so I have’t read the whole book yet. I have read the abridged version. But from what I saw, the book and the movie was so touching. My heart broke with the different characters depending on what they were going through. I teared up and laughed out loud several times watching this movie. I watched this specific version today at the theater and I loved it so much I decided to purchase it by pre-order. I think this is the best adaptation yet. I love their costumes too! Amazing!!! I love the older time periods pieces! I think Louisa May Alcott & Jo and I should switch time periods. I think she would have appreciated this present time more. If you love ‘Little Women’, this is the movie adaption to watch!
