Even though I’ve been slacking lately, I thought I’d share with y’all one of my favorite movies to watch during the Christmas season, Little Women. The classic novel written by Louisa May Alcott was published in the late 1800’s. The movie came out in 1994, so it’s definitely a throwback. The past few years, my sister friend Lizzi and I watched it together. I remember when it came out in theaters, seeing it there too. On Rachel Vail’s blog she recently posted a question about fictional crushes. Laurie, on page and on screen has been one of mine for so many years. Jo is one of my favorite literary heroines. Who doesn’t want to believe they have a feisty, stubborn Jo March streak? Somehow I just never tire of the story, even though it usually makes me cry. So, if you’re looking for something to watch this weekend why not revisit the March Family? The music is beautiful, the story is wonderful, there’s just so much to love about it. I get angry with the sisters, laugh and cry with them, it’s got that magic of a story all the best are made with.
If you haven’t seen it, then don’t watch this clip, but if you have then I’m not ruining anything and this is one of my most favorite scenes, of all time:
