Great Thanksgiving Story...
9 November 2009 | by (Salem, Illinois, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I think that the problem that most people have with this movie is that it is so far removed from Louisa May Alcott's story that the only thing they have in common is the title and the name of the family. And on a more personal level, my maternal grandmother being a Bassett from the old New England family, I didn't like that they turned Ellis Bassett into an Irishman, when Bassett is one of the oldest and well-known Norman-English names in England and Old Yankee names in New England. And so as not to make anyone mad, I do have some Irish in me and I don't have a problem with being Irish. It is just the turning of a name into something it isn't. It would be like calling the Kennedy family English.

So, now that I gave what I didn't like about the movie, this is what I loved. The movie was excellent. The costuming was out of this world. The homes in the movie were perfect. The plot line was good. The actors were great. And like with most Hallmark movies, I really felt good at the end of the movie.

So if you watch this movie just on its own, not comparing it to the original story by Louisa May Alcott, then you're going to love it.

I purchased the movie and it will be one of the movies that my family and I watch every year near Thanksgiving Day.
