Little Women in Theaters September 28 {Review}

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

As far as stories are concerned, I have always been a fan of ‘Little Women’. I have read the book in the past and watched the movie multiple times. The book and movie are both instant classics. The story is full of emotion and will stick with you throughout your life.  I was really excited to be able to experience the newest version of ‘Little Women’, as it was an opportunity to relive the classic story with a modern twist. The first thing I will tell you is to prepare yourself, grab a box of tissues, and get ready for the ugly cry. 

Sisters—and dreams—are unique in their ability to inspire, encourage and change the world. For 150 years, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women has motivated women of all ages to dream together and celebrate family. Coming to theaters for the first time, a modern retelling of LITTLE WOMEN brings a new generation together with their mothers, sisters, and friends.

From girls playing in the attic to women living with purpose, the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—are committed to always supporting each other. Yet, growing up sometimes means growing apart. An aspiring writer, Jo leaves for New York determined to publish a novel. In the wake of rejected draft upon draft, her editor challenges Jo to write about something more interesting—her family. When tragedy brings the sisters back home, sticking together takes on new meaning. As Jo comforts her sick sister, Beth asks for one thing: a story. Jo knows the perfect one … by heart.

I am one that loves to watch movies that are based on books that I have read. However, I do prefer to read the book always before watching the movie. Some people prefer to do it the other way around. Sometimes, movies cannot truly compare to the story in a well-written book. The new film version of Little Women offers the amazing story of a mom, her four daughters, love, sadness, and growing up just like the book version. However, this version came with a modern twist, which I loved! 

Even though the movie is set in modern times, the emotions you feel are the same and there is a sense of familiarity throughout the story that holds true to the original version. There were moments throughout the movie that I found myself remembering how I felt with the story I read and the original movie I watched. This story, though altered, was able to bring out the same feelings and emotions. 

The love of the sisters (even the fights), falling in love, growing up, and yes even the loss of loved ones will make you feel like you are part of their lives. Little Women is a movie that I can watch with my daughter, as it is family friendly with only a few moments that make it PG-13. I am so happy I had the chance to share this story with my daughter, who will be reading the book soon. She loves to read and she loved this movie.

Little Women will be in theaters everywhere on September 28th!
