Such a pleasure to see a movie with such superb acting and writing. They need to make more movies like this instead of that disgusting Tiffany Haddish movie. This definitely deserved the Oscar nominations it got.
This movie is so boring and uneventful! Anyone giving this a four or five star rating is insane....mind numbing...plotless...and without a doubt the worst of the Little Women films...very disappointing...you are going to regret it if you go...
Loved the historical quality of the film and tender relationships.
To say this movie was anything but a complete and utter waste of time would be giving it far too much credit. Like the previous poster I went because it was leading the box office so must be good right? WRONG!! it was absolutely b-o-r-i-n-g Shame on the academy for nominating this for best picture it was so stupid!
I went to this movie because it had five stars and was leading the box office gross receipts. I'm so sorry I went it was absolutely awful what a waste of time and money never ever again!
Took my daughter and her 3 friends - 14 yrs. We all found it boring, hard to follow, stupid. As a mother, elementary school teacher, and movie buff I didn't think it was very good at all. Funny how almost everything with Meryl Streep in it today is awful; she, who referred to Harvey Weinstein as "God". Two hours of our lives we will never get back.
I don't get why the ratings I saw before I went to this movie were 4 stars. This movie was all over the place. Too hard to follow, way to many flashbacks to figure out what was going on. Waste of time and money
The movie grew boring. The flashbacks were frustrating.characters were not developed enough for the audience to care what happened with them. I saw it with 15 year old. female She had same remarks.
I guess because I knew the story, there was no surprises. The original and second remake was better. All in all I found it kind of boring but can well understand how someone totally new to it would appreciate it much more. I didn't like the portrayal of Laurie at all. There wasn't any development of the relationship between Meg and her writing mentor. All of a sudden she's madly in love and you got the impression that she had only met him once. Not my favorite. I only saw it because there was nothing else I hadn't seen.
Wonderful period costumes & scenery. Switching time periods confusing & frustrating. Drawn out longer movie. Given piano to Beth was not the same piano she was playing at the mansion.
In my “best movie I’ve ever seen “ list! Beautifully acted, filmed, directed! I only wish I could have seen it with my daughters!
The director made every scene extraordinary..It felt like a new take on an old classic.The acting, the way it unfolded start to finish, I am amazed that more people are not calling this a masterpiece.
Well acted, enjoyable touching story for the era with some deviation from the book as this version did a more current rendition than the previous 2 versions.
Exceptional character acting
I would have rated it higher but too many flashbacks. Fortunately I had read the book long ago and seen all the other film version. Also liked the one with Winona Ryder as Jo and Katherine Hepburn long time ago. I liked this one enough that I will see again.
Good but not great. preferred the old version....actresses too old for the parts. Disappointed in Meryl Streep's part. Otherwise the scenery and costumes was good for that period of time.
Excellent. Probably the best movie playing right now.
Acting, directing, writing.
Such a bore, but probably an effective cure for insomnia.
Very beautiful movie. Story, scenery, cinematography. I love it.
Excellent adaptation, directing, acting, and costumes.
Enjoyed this movie.
Loved it! Well done adaptation of the classic novel. Watched with two adults and two girls 11 and 13 years old and we all loved it start to finish.
Beautifully made loved it.
Really great movie - acting, scenery, storyline, everything. Went with some people who had read the book and some who hadn’t - we all loved the movie
Wonderful! This is one of movies that should be seen on the big screen...beautifully done.
The longest, most boring movie,,,had 3 great naps. Scenery nice. Could have told the story in 1 . 5 hours
BEAUTIFULLY DONE,,, EXCELLENT ACTING ,,,A 5 STAR MOVIE..
Hated it. Sooo boring. Awful. I felt trapped, drawn and quartered.
A boring work. Needless and forgettable, but obviously appeals to the narcissistic types who will disparage those who disagree with them. Skip this one.
Loved it! Beauty, tears, laughter! Real LIFE! I am so tired of movies trying to out do each other on special effects! For all the haters - you are too shallow to get it. It’s a real struggle - that’s the key to watching this. 1868 when it was written you have to put yourself in that mind frame as a woman when u watch it. Loved loved loved it!! Thank you for stimulating the mind. Heart and soul and not like all the other movies that just want a rapid heart rate on fear and effects.
Very well done - excellent cinematography, especially the facial close ups. Nice suspenseful build-ups, great settings.
this was a great great movie and very well done!
started slowly and i kept getting lost as to when it was taking place but I figured they went back and forth...delightful movie...loved it..read the book years ago,.forgot so much..
Loved the actors, scenery,but not the story 😒.It is confusing to understand the story with the going back and forth.Im so glad I saw the original versions.It definitely has new feminist views and strong , independence of Joe even more than the books' .
A little hard to follow, but excellent performances by all players and a faithful rendition of the story.
I had never sent or read this story I left confused. I had to watch an older version of the movie to understand it - my friend felt the same
It was s little long but Great movie
True story ana must-see. base on the 1868 book
Acting and costumes were great! Noticed how some of the issues of the era are some of the same issues as today. Importance of family and sisterhood. About community, sharing what you have and helping those in need. Women’s struggle with economic dependence, the laws against women to own land and Independence. Greta Gerwig did an awesome job directing.
