Coinciding with the 150th anniversary of Louisa May Alcott's literary classic, this version retains many of the nuances of the original work (ex. Castles in the Air), while updating the tale of sisterly love for modern audiences (ex. instead of society balls, there is a spring Prom). The narrative jumps back and forth to capture many hallmark moments (celebrations and heartbreaks), and may seem jarring to viewers not familiar with the original piece. While this film serves as a fine introduction (the modern elements may intrigue new audiences to the story), it pales in comparison to the 1994 version with Winona Ryder.
