'An outstanding version of Louisa May Alcott's perennial, one that surpasses even the best previosu rendition, George Cukor's 1933 outing starring Katharine Hepburn' - Variety
'The film is, in short, a joy to behold. But beyond the eye candy, there is real substance in the screenwriting of Robin Swicord. It's her naturalistic approach to a story she clearly loves that brings this beautiful film to life' - Sojourner
