What can I say that hasn't been said before? I simply love this movie. I could watch it ten times in a row and still cry when Beth is gone. I use to hate Claire Danes as Beth. It infuriated me to no end that she was bigger than Jo, but as I got older and watched it with fresh eyes, I got over it. I actually think Danes is the best cast Beth so far. What I really love about this movie is the musical score and the costumes. The hair is perfect as well, as the frizzies were allowed to be free. I am offended by period movies where everyone's hair is perfect since they did not have hair spray back then. I am glad Gillian Armstrong let the frizzies come out naturally! One flaw of this movie is when Jo yells at Amy using today's terminology. I don't think the real Jo would say "I'm going to kill you! I hate you!" That seems very 1990's to me. But other than that, this is the best Little Women you can see and it is destined to become a classic if it isn't considered one already.
