Little WomenWinona Ryder (in an Oscar-nominated performance) and Susan Sarandon star in this affectionate and superbly acted family favorite. With her husband off at war, Marmee (Sarandon) is left alone to raise their four daughters, her “little women”. There is the spirited Jo (Ryder); conservative Meg (Trini Alvarado); fragile Beth (Claire Danes); and romantic Amy (played at different ages by Kristen Dunst and Samantha Mathis). As the years pass, the sisters share some of the most cherished and painful memories of self-discovery, as Marmee guide them through issues of independence, romance and virtue.
