In general, I don't like film remakes of books, but this is a great exception, because this movie is a complete masterpiece. It follows the March girls - Amy, Beth, Meg, and Jo - through their lives and loves.
Kirsten Dunst's performance at a young age was brilliant for someone so young, and she was perfect to play Amy. She was a clever and funny girl in the book, and this came across really well in Kirsten's acting. Clare Danes, Winona Ryder and Susan Sarandon were also excellent in this, especially Clare and Winona. They are exactly as I can imagine Jo and Beth.
It takes a lot to make me cry, and I absolutely sobbed at the scene when Beth died. It was so heart-wrenching, and I feel that the petals on the bed were a good touch to it.
The whole story of Little Women - whether it be film or literary - is a masterpiece.
