User Reviews

A very worthwhile interpretation of the classic books.
12 November 2018 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

This was shown on TV as a 3-part miniseries but I was able to watch it on DVD from my public library. The picture is superb, the sound is OK but some of the characters mumbled, requiring some viewing with subtitles. The DVD splits the presentation into three 1-hour segments, plus there are three very interesting "extras" regarding the making of the movie with Ireland playing the role of 1800s Massachusetts.

I have not read the book(s) and the only other version I have seen is the 1994 version which I enjoyed a lot. The basic family and story and friends are the same but the characters are at different ages and the story lines generally look at different aspects. There are a few comments about this version not being faithful to other versions, or the book(s), but that is a very shallow way of looking at this fine movie. What would be the point of making an exact remake of an older version? Or trying to incorporate everything in the book(s) in a 3-hour film?

Maya Hawke, the daughter of Ethan and Uma, is really very well chosen for the featured character, Jo March. She carries this role very naturally and authentically and the camera loves her face. I think we will be seeing her in additional featured roles. Also good are Dylan Baker as the father, Mr. March and Emily Watson as the mother, Marmee March.

All in all a very nice take on the Little Women stories.
