Review: My sisters, mom and I are huge Little Women fans. It is tradition in my family to watch Little Women every Christmas. We know the movie front and back. Of course, we went to see this little diddy on Sunday night. 

I actually loved this version of the classic Luisa May Alcott story. The cinematic we well done and the story was pretty spot on. Yes, there were some things that were added into the original story as my baby sister had to point out, but I thought the adds really enhanced the  story instead of taking away from it. Of course, my sister was too stuck on how much it wasn't like the original book to even think about liking the movie. 

There were a few little things that drove me nuts, but this was just me being nit picky. The actress playing Amy had a really deep voice and at times it sounded like she smoked a pack a day. It threw me a little since Amy is supposed to be like nine or ten in the book. Also, The actor who played Laurie needed to eat a sandwich. He was also really young looking when it came down to the end where they were all supposed to grown up. 

That is all I have to say about that. I really enjoyed this telling of the book and if you go into the movie trying not to compare it to the book or the other movies that have come out, you will be just as happy as I was.
