Little Women: A Modern Retelling -- Movie Giveaway!

In honour of the 150th anniversary of Louisa May Alcott's novel, "Little Women"will be hitting theaters on Friday, September 28, 2018! "Little Women" is a warm-hearted, modern retelling of the beloved novel.

"Love is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go, 
and it makes the end so easy."
Louisa May Alcott

The classic story is being brought to the screen with a present day twist. Lea Thompson and Lucas Grabeel (both from "Switched at Birth") are starring in this movie as Marmee and Laurie.

I was nervous about a modern retelling of the classic novel, but after watching the trailer I am excited to see it. I've always thought that the 1994 movie of "Little Women" was so well done that it couldn't possibly be improved upon. That being said, I think this version will be enough of a change with its modern day setting that I hope it will be a hit as well.



"Little Women" is in theaters September 28, 2018 and looks to be a great movie. Keep in mind the rating is PG 13 (for thematic elements and teen drinking).

Although I haven't seen the movie yet, I expect that the themes of family, love, and following your dreams will come shining through. I am looking forward to seeing this movie with my daughter, but I bet it will be one my son and husband will want to see too.

  19. We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.

  22. I am so sorry there is not a lot of people I can relate to in books. At the beginning yes. Jo March is a lot like myself but I married my Laurie. (He wasnt rich but there were a lot of similarities.)

  23. The character in literature that I can relate to would be Margaret March,because she cares for family like I do.
