About Little Women

With her husband off at war, Marmee (Susan Sarandon) is left alone to raise their four daughters, her little women. There is the spirited Jo (Winona Ryder); conservative Meg (Trini Alvarado); fragile Beth (Claire Danes); and romantic Amy (Kirsten Dunst and Samantha Mathis). As the years pass, the sisters share some of the most cherished and painful memories of self-discovery. [115 min; drama; English]

"Director Gillian Armstrong takes the delicate snow globe that is Little Women and gives it a bold new shake." — Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today

"[The novel's] themes have never not been fresh and they gleam here under the sympathetic and enlivening touch of Armstrong and her cast, who move through the events with sunny assurance and complete immersion in character." — Jay Carr, Boston Globe

"Director Gillian Armstrong and writer Robin Swicord have fashioned an entrancing film from this distinctly unfashionable classic." — Richard Corliss, TIME
