Each sister was given a distinctive color palette for their wardrobe: Meg's is lavender and green, Jo's is red and indigo, Beth's is pink and brown, and Amy's is light blue. Their mother Marmie often wears a combination of all their colors. See more »
Amy uses the term "marry rich," which did not exist in 1864. The term used would have been "marry well," which appears several times in Alcott's text. See more »
Greta Gerwig, in my estimation, is one of the most brilliant female scriptwriters/film directors currently making movies. Her version on Alcott's classic novel is spellbinding. She adroitly juxtapositions a several years span between the year composing and publication of her 1868 book and the Civil War years at home when the novel's events took place. I am also appreciative of Yorick Le Saux's plush cinematography. What a duo Gerwig and the French photographer made to produce one of the most gorgeous period pieces in many of a moon.
Two minor complaints: The casting of Timothee Chalet, the love interest of two of the sisters. He's portrayed as a young wastrel whose apathy somehow attracts the two into wanting to marry. Another is that Alcott had writing success writing under the nom de plume A.M. Bernard before composing Little Women, a detail totally ignored.
Otherwise, an outstanding film that surprised even this guy who went on his wife's insistence.
