Quotes

Jo March: I can't say "Yes" truly so I won't say it at all. You'll see that I'm right, eventually, and you'll thank me for it.
Theodore 'Laurie' Laurence: I'll be hanged if I do!
Jo March: You'll find some lovely accomplished girl, who will adore you, and make a fine mistress for your fine house. I wouldn't.

Enjoyable with superb acting
29 December 2019 | by sbweightmanSee all my reviews

An enjoyable period drama about the growing up and loves of a group of sisters in 1800's America. Superb acting from the cast and a great depiction of the presentation of the era, although it is all a bit too clean and idyllic at times. There isn't a strong single plot but instead a selection of events which are interesting enough and never dull, although it can feel a bit jumbled at times due to all the flashbacks.
