From girls playing in the attic to women living with purpose, the March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy – are committed to always supporting each other. Yet growing up sometimes means growing apart. When tragedy brings the sisters back home, sticking together takes on a new meaning. Little Women – starring Lea Thompson – brings the same sisters to a new generation to celebrate dreams, family and unconditional love.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This updated version of Little Women may hold some appeal for newcomers, but fans of the classic source material have far better adaptations to choose from.

Common Sense Says
Well-intentioned Alcott modernization misses the mark.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this version of Little Women is a modern-day take on Louisa May Alcott's classic novel about the four March sisters (which is set in Civil War-era New England). Starring Lea Thompson as Marmee and High School Musical alum Lucas Grabeel as Laurie, the movie modernizes the story with devices like smartphones and computers but retains the family structure and many of the book's quotes and plot points (it stumbles when trying to re-create the original's context). Iffy content is fairly minimal: The word "crap" is used, teens drink in a couple of scenes, one kiss verges on being non-consensual, and a beloved character gets sick and dies. But given its flashbacks and themes about growing up, falling in love, and finding your voice, this one is better for tweens than younger kids.
