Condition: New
Sealed in manufacturer's shrink wrap~Fast shipping. Louisa May Alcott's classic novel about a family of women in Civil War-era New England is again brought to the screen in this ... adaptation. The focus is on the March sisters, four young girls raised by their mother (Susan Sarandon) after their father leaves for battle as part of the Union Army. At the center is Jo March (Winona Ryder), an idiosyncratic would-be writer said to be based on Alcott herself, but the film also focuses on the stories of her sisters -- the more conventional Meg (Trini Alvarado), the innocent Beth (Claire Danes), and the precocious Amy (Kirsten Dunst and Samantha Mathis, who represent Amy at different ages.)With director Gillian Armstrong and star Susan Sarandon involved, it was a safe bet that the 1994 film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel Little Women would highlight the feminist undertones.Anchored by Winona Ryder's performance as aspiring writer Jo, the uniformly strong ensemble cast breathes life into the March family's emotional highs and lows; the carefully crafted period settings and costumes lend an appropriately appealing atmosphere. Greeted with rave reviews, Little Women became a Christmas-season success and went on to earn Oscar nominations for Best Score and Best Costumes and for Ryder as Best Actress.Thank you for your consideration.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
With director Gillian Armstrong and star Susan Sarandon involved, it was a safe bet that the 1994 film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel Little Women would highlight the feminist undertones in a story about four daughters growing up under the nurturing eye of their Marmee. Rather than lard on the sentiment or the message, however, Armstrong's dramatic restraint makes the tale of sisterhood, love, and family all the more affecting. Establishing the March sisters' personalities through their quotidian interactions with one another and the handsome men in their lives, Armstrong never loses sight of Marmee's challenge to her girls to develop their intellects as well as their beauty, even as 19th century convention dictated that they yearn for the men of their dreams. Anchored by Winona Ryder's performance as aspiring writer Jo, the uniformly strong ensemble cast breathes life into the March family's emotional highs and lows; the carefully crafted period settings and costumes lend an appropriately appealing atmosphere. Greeted with rave reviews, Little Women became a Christmas-season success and went on to earn Oscar nominations for Best Score and Best Costumes and for Ryder as Best Actress.

    Little Women

    "Little Women" is a book written by Luisa May Alcott in 1868. Most people consider it to be a "girl's book", but I think that everyone can learn some valuable life lessons from this book. The story is about four young girls Meg, Joe, Beth and Amy who live with their mother, and struggle against poverty, while their father is serving as a doctor in the Civil War. At the beginning of the novel they are all young and innocent, unprepared to face the reality, but as the story continues they learn the hard way that life is not a fairy tale.
    Joe is one the sisters and also the main character of the novel, who has to face many obstacles in life: saying goodbye to her older sister when she gets married, coping with the death of her younger sister Beth and struggling to become someone in this world through writing. She has a unique personality, yet she has many things in common with us. Even though she is the rebel of the family, she has a nice heart and cares about the others.
    Another important character in the novel is Mrs. March, the mother of the girls. Since Mr. March is not there to support the family, they do not have the money that they had before. Mrs. March knows how her daughters feel about this and she makes sure that even though they are struggling economically the girls do not complain about anything. She is that kind of a person who would sacrifice herself for other people. Mrs. March is a wonderful mother, who provides wisdom and advice for her children and leads then through the narrow path of happiness.
    This book is not only fun to read but also provides you with words of wisdom about life. I learned a lot by reading "Little Women" and I am really happy that I had the chance to read such a wonderful book. By reading this book I learned to important things: the role of the family in someone's life and no matter how difficult the situation may look you should never give up. The family plays a vital role for everyone, because it is always there to support you or pick you up if you fall. I find it really hard to get through life without the love and the support of my family. Perseverance is also and other important thing if you need to succeed in life, seeing Joe struggling with her writing but succeeding at the end because she never gave up motivates you to do the same thing.

    A classic you must see!

    I purchased Little Women on my Barnes and Noble e reader a few months ago. I decided that I wanted to start reading the old classics that I was suppose to read in school and never did.
    So I purchased Little Women on my Barnes and Noble e reader and would read it for a while then put it down. I found the book to be dry and repetitious.
    I asked one of the sales people at Barnes and Noble if they had Little Women on DVD and they did. As a matter of fact they had several versions of Little Women played by different actors. I chose Susan Sarandon who played the mother in Little Women.
    So having read part of the book was nice when watching the movie, because it was easier to piece together the story and the plot.
    This is definitly a womens movie.
    The price of the movie was very inexpensive, plus it was on sale and I used by Barnes and Noble members card to save even more.
    I'm looking forward to watching it again by myself or with a friend.

    Book/DVD

    This book is one of my favorite classic stories. Also, this movie version staring Winnona Rider is my favorite rendition. I strongly recommend buying the combo of the movie and book. What a great buy for your money!

    Little Women is a must see movie.

    I completely love Little Women. There are a lot of life changes that you can relate to in this movie. The acting in this movie is great too. And I love the characters Jo, Beth, Amy, and Laurie. I have watched this movie every Christmas eve since I was five and it never gets old.

    It wasn't bad...

    Okay, 1 month after reading the book and I watch this version. Not bad. It has a lot of gaps in it, though, and parts were jumped around. (Meg's twins were born long before Beth died.) Also, I found that the love affair between John and Meg came up a little too quickly. (First she's on his arm and then they're engaged.) Ryder did a good portrayal of Jo, even though there was something missing in the character in parts that I could not put my finger on. I'm slightly disappointed that this version did not focus on all of the sisters, as the book did. It focused some on Beth, some on Amy, some on Jo, but Meg pretty much left the picture for a while when she was married, until she had her twins. I liked Kirsten Dunst as the younger Amy. There were very boring parts in the book, I will admit, that were very slow reading. This is the only version I've seen so far, for the 2nd time. (1st doesn't count, I was only about 3 years old.) The movie did not leave me satisfied, even though it was not bad. The acting was acceptable, but overall I found the movie a little lacking. The movie could have gone a little further beyond the umbrella scene, that bugged me a little. I don't think the message Little Women was supposed to give came out completely in this movie.

    I Prefer the 1949 and 1933 Versions But This is Good Too!

    I loved Louisa May Alcott's book and I have seen three movie adaptations of the book and while I prefer the 1949 version with June Allyson and the 1933 version with Katharine Hepburn I liked this too. It's not entirely faithful to the book but does have the spirit of the book and has a good cast, especially Susan Sarandan, Gabriel Byrne, Winona Ryder and Kirsten Dunst and I like that in this movie they made Amy the youngest because she was the youngest of the girls in the book and the older movies made Beth younger than Amy and I liked how they got it right in this version and I have to assume that reviwers who compained that Amy was younger than Beth in this version must not have read Louisa May Alcott's book and only saw the older movie versions because if they had read the book they would know that Amy is supposed to be younger than Beth.

    Beautiful Story

    This is a great movie. I love it more each time I see it...it could easily become a classic. The stories of all these young sisters making the transition from child into woman. If you have a sentimental heart you will enjoy this film.

    Little Women movie

    This movie is one of those feel good dramas that make you all warm inside. It's a nice movie to a good book and Winona Ryder does a good job portraying Jo March, one of the March sisters. Her mother and sisters go through some events but learn something from it. Entertaining film none the less.

    lovely but a bit dissapointed

    I guess it is my fault for reading the book so narrow mindedly. But, I loved jo's character so much that I was sure and so longed for she and laurie to fall in love and get married. Other than that, the book was remarkable. The family values portrayed in this book should be what we all strive for in our own homes.

    Wonderful adaptation!

    I absolutely love this movie! I've read the book and it stays pretty faithful. Although, they leave out the last chapter, which I would have liked to have seen. And it also bugs me that they credit Jo for writing 'Little Women' in the movie, when that NEVER happened in the book. I realize Jo sort of came from Louisa May Alcott, but they still shouldn't have done it. Great acting! I can see why Winona Ryder got an Oscar nomination for this role, not that the others didn't deserve it. I'm glad they didn't make the men as described in the book. I don't think Professor Bhaer would have been as appealing if he had a long gray beard and hair. Please watch this movie and read the book!
