This movie is awful1By TahaneeThis movie is awful. In my opinion Greta can neither write nor direct and the editing of this movie is all over the place. If you can figure out what the plot of this movie is without having read the book (like myself) then I applaud you. The constant cuts to the flashbacks is jarring and seems to make no sense with the rest of the movie. All of the girls in the are one dimensional while also coming off as entitle spoiled brats. They claim to be poor yet their house, food, and surroundings seems to be more indicative of being more lower-middle class or just middle class. The language and some of their actions don’t match up with the time period this is supposed to be set it by any means. Also the actor who plays Laurie is dreadful in every role I’ve seen him in. Basically watching paint dry would be highly more interesting than this movie. Avoid at all costs.
Awesome!5By narwhalz are litGreta Gerwig did an awesome job with this adaptation, the acting was also incredible and honestly just a fun and light-hearted movie to watch!
Love it5By Doogie_solReally love it
Men Know How Strong Women Are4By BabyBoomerWriterThis production was different, not better. It diverged from linear storytelling by interrupting with flashbacks. Quality acting, beautiful sets, & lush costumes. Greta Gerwig was wonderful, as was the actress who played her mother. However, some of these talented actors seemed miscast, which made their behavior/personality come off as inconsistent. It A beautiful film effort; with a script laden with emotion. If the director intended to improve upon this classic story to convey a stronger feminist message, it was unnecessary.
A real gem.5By FramboiseSuch a fresh take on an old story. The performances, the music, the settings. All a delight.
Not sure what to make of it?3By Amy134679I agree with the reviewers that have stated the 1994 movie is far superior. The acting was great in this film, but it felt like they time jumped a lot. That is to say that some of the speech and overall behavior of the characters were in the right time period but then would jump to 2019 in the most politically correct ways which felt very out of place. I didn't like that. I found it jolting and disorienting. I don't understand why it was titled Little Women if it doesn't follow the book? Are these plot lines actually part of the story? I don't remember a lot of them. I feel like it should have been titled differently because with the title Little Women you expect it to follow LMA's story closely and I feel like there were an awful lot of liberties.
Absolutely Despise This Remake!!!!!! To the 10th power1By BrendaVJI’ve watched both the 1949 and the 1994 version witch happens to be my favorite. I find that all the “little women along with their mother “ are the fakes version of the characters they are portraying. I love each and everyone of these characters with their complexities, but on this new version they destroyed each and every character. I’m trying to make a new “women’s movement version” of little women they made a forced, annoying, even nauseating characters that are as deep as a pot hole on the road and as annoying. I think these actresses are good actors in other movies but in these roles they portrayed they seem like beginners, think were done a great injustice in wasting their talent in a terribly bad script. Shame on the rewriters and producers for doing such a bad Job!!!!! I’m sad, I’m trying to pretend I never saw it.
Not need for a remake1By AmokpopI was disappointed of this new version of the movie it change the classic to a prime tv show of this days, it was like watching a 2019 common series with a change of clothing and scenery, I know it was remake for the new generation but I prefer the original book version that I fall in love with.
Beautifully done5By Chloe SohngenGreat Gerwig is a genius. This story could not have been told any better. Timeless piece, and makes you feel every possible emotion. One of my favorite films of all time.
