Little Women, a holiday favorite!
There are movies I love to watch every December that are not necessarily holiday movies, but have such a rich holiday feel to them that I’m almost immediately transported into the holiday spirit upon watching them . The first one is the 1994 version of Little Women starring Wynona Ryder, Susan Sarandon and Christian Bale, to name a few. Based on the Louisa May Alcott novel of the same name, it is the fifth feature film adaptation of the Alcott classic. The film focuses on the March sisters – lovely Meg (Trini Alvarado), passionate Jo (Winona Ryder), gentle Beth (Claire Danes), and romantic Amy (Kirsten Dunst) - growing up in Concord, Massachusetts during and after the American Civil War. With their father away fighting in the war, the girls struggle with life’s difficulties under the guidance of their strong-willed mother, affectionately called Marmee (Susan Sarandon).
I love every part of this movie from the choice of actors, the beautiful setting and the Academy Award nominated musical score.
