The flaws are easily forgiven in this beautiful version of Louisa May Alcott's novel. A stirring look at life in New England during the Civil War, Little Women is a triumph for all involved. We follow one family as they split into the world, ending up with the most independent, the outspoken Jo (Winona Ryder). This time around, the dramatics and conclusions fall into place a little too well, instead of finding life's little accidents along the way. Everyone now looks a bit too cute and oh, so nice. As the matron, Marmee, Susan Sarandon kicks the film into a modern tone, creating a movie alive with a great feminine sprit. Kirsten Dunst (Interview with the Vampire) has another showy role. The young ensemble cast cannot be faulted, with Ryder beginning the movie in a role akin to light comedy and crescendoing to a triumphant end worthy of an Oscar. I saw this version on "Little Women" shortly after reading the book, and was pleased with how well it followed the book. True, the screenplay did invoke a little modern feminism, but there was a feminist movement during the 1860's; it was called the suffragette movement. The Marches were transcendentalists, and as such, were greatly involved with all of the social issues of the day including child labor and rights of women and blacks. Knowing this, I did not have a problem with some of the liberties taken by the screenwriter. I feel this adaptation of "Little Women" was much more faithful to the book than the Katharine Hepburn/Janet Leigh version. That version seemed to center mostly on the girls fighting for the affections of Laurie, which was really a minor plot line in the book. The older version also made Marmee into a fretting, hand-wringing worrywart instead of the truly courageous woman that she was. This version of "Little Women" was beautifully acted, beautifully filmed, and beatifully scored. I can't pick a favorite performance, although I am a bit partial to Winona Ryder and Christian Bale, the latter playing a flawless Laurie, and the former inhabiting the very spirit of Jo March. I've seen this movie many times and cry at about half of the scenes. This gorgeous movie never grows old, the mark of a truly great movie.
