In this video, I take a look at the American major motion picture adaptations of Little Women to understand how they have changed over time (this is me acknowledging that I'm not *actually* comparing every version of Little Women). How does a 150 year old text remain relevant? And how have different filmmakers found new ways to tell this story?

THANK YOU to my Patrons!
