Movie Madness Mondays: Little Women

September 29, 2008

I have read this book many times. As a kid I used to read it, and then weep… I always related so much to Jo, and her journey. And when I cut my hair and got all that “hate mail” I joked about how I was like Jo when she cut hers, and they were all like, “But Jo, your hair was your one beauty!” She was creative, abrasive,and so not in touch with herself as a female. And every time I got to the part where she said no to Laurie’s marriage proposal, I cried. heehee… Her journey seems like the quintessential teen journey of finding oneself and failing all over the place, all the while standing up for who you think you are. And in the process getting to know who you truly are, and who you want to become.

Each female in this kinda represents a different aspect of female to me… The strength and creativity of Jo, the compassion and kindness of Beth, the girlishness of Amy, the femininity and Meg and the nurturing of their mother. The actors were lovely. When I saw this I totally fell in love with Christian Bale… Still think he’s pretty awesome.

Ciao and Love,


Movie for next week: Let’s go uber chick! The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood!
