New Little Women movie is excellent

Hi all,

If you have the chance, the new version of "Little Women" is a beautiful movie. The director boldly sliced the timeline of the story up with a very happy result of giving it reflections that a rote rendering of the original book couldn't do. Fantastic acting, even of the character of the mother, which is normally just a cipher role.

Solid score by M. Desplat that stays out of the way of the story, which is already powerfully rendered. He creates a "frame" for the performances, which thankfully don't need the heavy lifting that is sometimes necessary in a weaker film.
