You'll fall in love with "Little Women"
8 January 2020 | by SnobReviewsSee all my reviews

"Little Women" is empowering, refreshing and an absolutely lovely film backed by an incredible cast. . In this drama, the March sisters are four young women each determined to live life on their own terms. Based on the classic novel of the same name. . I had neutral feelings about "Little Women" as I walked in to take my seat, but in the end I thoroughly enjoyed this film. A sweet, sensitive and powerful film that will remain timeless like its source material. The cast of leads is terrific but Florence Pugh steals the show. Pugh will become one of the great leading ladies in the biz (see also "Fighting With My Family", "Midsommar"). "Little Women" is garnished with beauty and a joy to watch. You will fall in love with this film.
