The Critic - Little Women

Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, and Florence Pugh

Rated: PG  

Runtime: 2 Hours 15 Minutes


A mother and her four daughters plod bravely through the hardships of societal expectations while their father is fighting for the Union Army. Triumph and tragedy ebb and flow throughout.

Little Women, earns four out of five, Ice Skating Monkeys. The story skips back and forth through time and relies a bit on the viewer to have read the book or watched earlier movie adaptations. Fortunately this film is much closer to the book than earlier versions. The acting is performed with dedication and in full earnest. The  cinematography is very well done.
