Mine: Beautifully done. I must admit that I have never read the book, but this was a really good film. The entire cast is wonderful, many standouts.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Exquisite rendering of Louisa May Alcott's Civil War-era classic about four devoted sisters who eventually have to leave their New England nest. A perfect cast is led by Ryder as the headstrong Jo, with Sarandon as that tower of strength, Marmee. Not a false moment or false move in the entire film, though purists may object to Marmee mouthing 1990s-style feminist doctrine. Veteran character actress Wickes threatens to steal every scene she's in, as crotchety Aunt March. Screenplay by Robin Swicord.

One of my favorite books since the 4th grade. Story is wonderful. The movie is gorgeous with a great cast -- it's interesting to compare this version of the film with the two others that I know of -- one with Elizabeth Taylor and another with Katherine Hepburn. I love them all, but this may very well be my favorite.
