“If the main character is a girl, make sure she is married by the end. Or dead. Either way.”
Imaginative retelling of Louisa May Alcott classic nineteenth-century coming of age novel. However, the folded timeline assumes—no, depends on the viewer already knowing the story. Otherwise it’s not nearly as marvelous.
“I may not always be right. But I am never wrong.”
Nice Sets and costumes. Good music and photography. Excellent performance by Saoirse Ronan. Other than for poster presence, they wasted their money on Meryl Streep. The whole thing is okay, but not as good as Alcott’s story deserves.
“Life is too short to be angry at one’s sisters.”
