From the classic original to the classic 2021 sequel, there’s some good stuff and bad in between.
There is next to no thrill the viewer gets from seeing Adams huff her way through the scenes, wondering if she’s imagining things or if her life is even worth living.
There are so many moments that inspire tears in Little Women. These tears are happy as well as sad. They are a reminder that life is short and it’s the quality of life that matters. In controlling their reactions to challenges, Jo and their sisters begin to own their stories. It’s our luck that they allowed us to share in the glory of their lives. This is one of the year’s best.
“This movie feels like something relatable to people who don’t expect films to be relatable anymore. “
“This film is a must for fans of Michael Shannon. It’s yet another example of his powerfully subtle presentation skills. If one can get past the fact that it stars Spacey, this is film will delight, inform and entertain the viewer.”
