Sets, costumes and cinematography are all worthy of the likable job Gillian Armstrong did on the ’94 version of Little Women, a U.S. production with Susan Sarandon and Winona Ryder. The film is a sweet, vigorous semi-fairy tale divorced neither from a certain religious spirit nor from Armstrong’s feminist sensibility. Much of the acting is subpar, but that’s about the only blemish.
Don’t worry. One of these days I will also review the old George Cukor film of Little Women.
