Papa March is seen in his Army Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) with rank insignia (captain's "railroad tracks") on both collars. Army officers did not wear rank insignia on both collars of the BDU but rank insignia on the right collar and branch insignia on the left collar; as he has been identified as a surgeon, he would have worn railroad tracks on the right and the caduceus insignia of the Medical Corps on the left. (This is still not nearly as bad a goof as in the 1994 version Little Women, set during the Civil War as was the original novel, where every other soldier seen in uniform beside Papa March wore both officers' shoulder boards and enlisted men's stripes!)

Making films is HARD. This is Clare Niederpruem's directorial debut - the first film she's ever directed - and you'd never guess. This movie is extremely capably crafted, and holds its own quite easily with any of the other films currently in the movie theaters right now. Every aspect of the film was great - the acting, the cinematography, the production design, the sound, the editing - and most importantly, the storytelling.
I enjoyed every bit of this film. I was quite moved multiple times, and left the theater very affected.
