Little Women (1994)

For the third screen version of the Louisa May Alcott classic, director
Gillian Armstrong (MY BRILLIANT CAREER) brings conversational dialogue
and contemporary actresses (Winona Ryder, Susan Sarandon, etc.) to the
story of four Civil War-era sisters who cheerily struggle their way
through life's many struggles.

This steady drama has none of the stuffiness of, say, a Merchant-Ivory
production and that should be good for most audiences across America.
Just as the safe screenplay assures us that nothing *too* bad will
befall the characters that we grow to love.

Grade: A-
