Little Women

PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing “MASTERPIECE: LITTLE WOMEN†on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD. Set against the backdrop of a country divided, the story follows the four March sisters on their journey from childhood to adulthood while their father is away at war.

Under the guidance of their mother Marmee, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from gender roles to sibling rivalry, first love, loss and marriage. Accompanied by the charming boy next door Laurie Laurence, their cantankerous wealthy Aunt March and benevolent neighbor Mr. Laurence, Little Women is a coming-of-age story that is as relevant and engaging today as it was on its original publication in 1868.

This movie is available on DVD and Blu-ray May 22, 2018. The runtime of the program is approximately 180 minutes. The DVD SRP is $24.99 and the Blu-ray SRP is $34.99. The program will also be available for digital download starting May 14th. You can find it on Amazon.

Heading the cast are Academy Award® nominee Emily Watson (The Theory of Everything, Hilary and Jackie) as Marmee, the devoted mother of the four adolescent March girls; Michael Gambon (Churchill’s Secret, Page Eight) as Mr. Laurence; and Academy Award® winner Angela Lansbury (Murder, She Wrote, The Manchurian Candidate) as the March family matriarch, Aunt March.

My thoughts

I’m a HUGE fan of Angela Lansbury so having her in this movie was just the icing on the cake. I think it does a wonderful job of being true to the original story. I love everything about it from the clothes to music. Plus there is bonus video included with the Blu-ray that has all sorts of extras. My personal favorite is Visit Orchard House. There is just so much to love about this Blu-ray that you really need to pick up a copy for yourself.
