Winona Ryder, much of whose youth was spent in Petaluma, joined in the highly publicized search effort and made a number of emotional appeals for the child's safe return. See more »

I have always loved "Little Women" this is a wonderful rendition.
5 September 2002 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

The actors did a wonderful job. The wardrobe, scenery, furniture --- everything seemed authentic. I smiled, laughed and cried!!!!!! I really enjoyed watching this movie. Susan Sarandon was just perfect (as usual)

I usually don't like remakes of any movie, but this one was wonderful!!!
