Winona Ryder (in an Oscar® nominated role) and Academy Award® winner Susan Sarandon (1995 Best Actress, Dead Man Walking) star in this "affectionate, superbly acted" (Los Angeles Times) family favorite. With her husband off at war, Marmee (Sarandon) is left alone to raise their four daughters, her Little Women. There is the spirited Jo (Ryder); conservative Meg (Trini Alvarado, Paulie); fragile Beth (Claire Danes, William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet); and romantic Amy (played at different agesby Kristen Dunst, Wag the Dog and Samantha Mathis, Broken Arrow). As the years pass, the sisters share some of the most cherished and painful memories of self-discovery, as Marmee and Aunt March (Mary Wickes, The Man Who Came to Dinner) guide them through issues of independence, romance and virtue. Gabriel Byrne (End of Days), Eric Stoltz (TV's "Chicago Hope") and Christian Bale (The Portrait of a Lady) co-star in this "handcrafted valentine" (Newsweek) of a film.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ladies, get out your hand-hemmed handkerchiefs for the loveliest Little Women ever on screen.
Fresh: Director Gillian Armstrong and writer Robin Swicord have fashioned an entrancing film from this distinctly unfashionable classic.
Fresh: An outstanding version of Louisa May Alcott's perennial, one that surpasses even the best previous rendition, George Cukor's 1933 outing starring Katharine Hepburn.
Fresh: Meticulously crafted, and warmly acted.
Excellent book, excellent movie. One of the few times that i've actually enjoyed a movie adapted from a book.
this moive is great and has alot of awesome romance. I think christian bale is sooo HOT.
I absolutly LOVE this book and movie!! It's a wonderful story full of life, family, and love. Both the book and the movie have a great story. It's not like (for example) Twilight, which in my opinion is stupid! And Winona Rider portrays Jo beautifly!!! I don't think anyone could have done it better. All I have 2 say is BRAVO!!!!
