My Overall Rating : 9/10
Based on the famous novel Little Women by the American writer Louisa May Alcott, this movie stars Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Christian Bale, Kirsten Dunst, Samantha Mathis and many others. The star cast is powerful of course and so is the movie. The plot is set in post civil war America, where the March family consisting of four daughters and their mother is living at their home while Mr. March has volunteered to participate in the war.
The protagonist is Jo March (played by Winona Ryder), a character loosely based on the author of the book herself.
The opening itself introduces us to the March family explaining their current situation as Mrs. March reads a letter from Mr. March, to her daughters. The story proceeds and sets the plots even firmer. One thing that I think you must watch out for (especially if you're a girl), Christian Bale playing Laurie. I say so because today's generation has seen him playing psycho and macho roles alone, so please take a look at this apple pie character of his, I'm sure you'll like it.
The movie is good in every aspect, the characters are very original, the pace never really slows down and the performance is great. The ensemble of this cast is probably the best possible.
I won't give any further details or narrate the complete story myself, its for you to watch. I believe it is a CLASSIC.
