Little Women is the remake of the classic novel written by Louisa May Alcott. The story revolves around the four March sisters, Jo (Wynona Rider), Meg (Trini Alvarado), Beth (Claire Danes), and the youngest sister Amy (Kristen Dunst).

With strong morals, Marmee helps the girls with their independent spirits and their dreams and desires as they grow. Jo wants to be a writer and Meg is the oldest and is the beauty of the family. Beth is a pianist and Amy wants to grow up to be an artist. Their neighbor, Laurie (Christian Bale) is from a wealthy family. He befriends the girls while he lives with his grandfather next door to the March family. Through thick and thin the family sticks together and as the girls grow, they branch off to where their dreams and hearts lead them.moreless
