Little Women (Gillian Armstrong, 1994)

G | 118 Mins | 1994 | DCP | US | D: Gillian Armstrong

Gillian Armstrong’s 1994 interpretation of Little Women revived the cherished story of the March sisters, the subject of four film adaptations, including George Cukor’s 1933 Oscar-winning version.

Led by Winona Ryder and starring a young Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes, and Christian Bale, Armstrong’s take on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel beautifully captures the tender tribulations of four young women coming of age during the American Civil War.
