The new movie LITTLE WOMEN is the seventh film version of the popular novel written by Louisa May Alcott in the 1860’s. The film has earned almost universal acclaim from critics, so I’m in a small minority when I say that LITTLE WOMEN is a good but not great comedy-drama about four 19th century sisters who are determined to live life on their own terms. Writer-director Greta Gerwig has put together a great cast, but her technique of jumping back and forth between their late childhood and early womanhood can be confusing. Plus the plot feels a bit overstuffed. Don’t get me wrong, this movie is well worth seeing. Just don’t let your expectations get too high the way I did.
