Little Women – A Terrific Movie With An Important Story #littlewomen

little-women-poster“Little Women” is a classic American tale of four strong sisters who love one another and are trying to make the best of the situation that the culture of the late 1800s that holds them back. The story has been made into movies for the cinema and mini-series for TV.

An all-star cast led by Greta Gerwig (who should have been nominated for an Oscar for best director for this adaptation) made a great movie for today’s audience. I really enjoyed the performances and the casting was great.

Themes of female empowerment are all throughout this as author Louisa May Alcott wrote it. However, empowerment is the freedom for women to make their own decisions about their own lives and to keep what they earn even in marriage.

It’s also a story about family sticking together no matter what happens in the world they live in even during a war. There are tragedies that impact the March family and their neighbors.

The March sisters were awesome and as I say the power of a woman who is free to be who she wants is unstoppable. Fangirls are one of the greatest forces for good past and present. This story is one of those that should remind women everywhere that sisterhood and friendship are vital. See this movie. It will move you and give you encouragement no matter if you are a little or big woman or even a man.

Little Women, Strong As Hell

91+1FZn0QGL._SY445_I have seen lately two adaptations of Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women” and have enjoyed the story very much. Granted I am not much of a reader so I am learning more from the TV and Movie presentations I have seen. What strikes me is this story is about strong women taking care of business and family during the Civil War era. It also is a reminder of how good Men have had it in terms of social advantage and status.

Women in my mind are strong and fierce. They know how to survive. The little women of this story are truly giants who want to make contributions to family and the world. They survive by relying upon one another and do whatever they can to make their family thrive under the circumstances of the time.

Women are strong as hell and these women in this story prove it. Sure they have their moments of vulnerability and tragedy but it can only make them stronger. One thing these women can do is love strongly, which is inspirational. I appreciate this story reminding the world that if given an opportunity women rarely miss their shot in life.
