    Beautiful movie! It seems so magical yet so real! I never get tired of watching it and every character has their own part in the story. A true classic novel turned into a masterpiece in film

    Incredible cast, incredible screenplay. Gerwig is getting better movie after movie: if Lady Bird was a revelation, Little Women surely is her consecration between the greats of cinema.

    I was never really a fan of "Little Women", but this version was less enjoyable than the Winona Ryder version. Time kept jumping back and forth in this version, and I had to look for clues to see where we were in the timeline. It also seemed like they kept interjecting political talking points at random spots in the movie. I'm not against political messages; it just seemed particularly forced here. The emotions didn't seem real here, either. Sometimes they came across as Hallmark characters on Prozac. The Christmas breakfast scene seemed logistically impossible, and that really bothered me. I had the same problem here as I did with the previous versions: the plot for this story just isn't all that compelling. The photography, clothing and set design were great, though, so there's that.

    It made me feel a lot of emotions, I really enjoyed it ! The actors are really talented, the light and colors are amazing and soft giving a poetic tone to the scenes ! It's a great adaptation ! It wasn't a revolution in cinema but quite good !

    A beautiful adaption of the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, Grewig's 'Little Women' consists of a remarkably talented cast and is visually stunning. A must watch, heart-warming film that is guaranteed to make you smile, cry and laugh all at once.

    The characters are all so fleshed out and everyone's playing their polar opposite to their characters in Lady Bird; the carefree spirit becomes the lonely downbeat storyteller, the rebellious punk rockstar wannabe becomes the kind, sweet and sensitive gentleman and so on and so forth. We are blessed with a surprising allstar cast, beautiful cinematography, typically sharp writing and directing and a well-paced story where everything feels essential, all as always. I disagree with those who say it's overlong but agree that it's main flaw it it's confounding nonlinear structure set in the blue end of the timeline and the yellowish-orange 7 years prior. All the jumping around is confusing, as well as how vaguely we are told of events and how it intertwines with the author's stories. It doesn't add much to jump around so much, other than to challenge it's audience to figure out it's complex timeline. The ending also felt abrupt, but as I am new to the Little Women property, I cannot say if this was in the original novel or millions of screen adaptations before. I absolutely reccomend it nonetheless. 8.75/10.

    Little Women Review: 8/10 Pros: Extremely charming overall Awesome performances across the board Witty and realistic characters Cons: Some plot lines lay dormant for too long that it seems cheap when they are finally fulfilled Drags on during the middle of its 3rd act

    An imaginative take on the source material... I still like the 90s version better though.

    Just perfect. The atmosphere the movie creates is truly magical and the story feels as modern as ever. The casting is also great.
