Trivia

Olivia Hussey expressed interest in playing Marmee, but was ultimately turned down due to her thick English accent and because producers felt that she looked too much like Trini Alvarado (Meg March) See more »

Goofs

When Jo tells the family she sold her hair for the train ticket, it looks as if her long hair is bundled under her wig. In real life, Winona Ryder's hair was very short and there were two wigs made for Jo March, one long and one short. What looks like long hair bundled up is really Winona's hair peeking out below the wig. See more »

Quotes

Marmee: [as revenge, Amy has burned a precious manuscript] It is a very great loss and you have every right to be put out. But don't let the sun go down on your anger. Forgive each other, begin again tomorrow.
Jo: I will never forgive her.

I have always loved "Little Women" this is a wonderful rendition.
5 September 2002 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

The actors did a wonderful job. The wardrobe, scenery, furniture --- everything seemed authentic. I smiled, laughed and cried!!!!!! I really enjoyed watching this movie. Susan Sarandon was just perfect (as usual)

I usually don't like remakes of any movie, but this one was wonderful!!!
