The New Little Women (2018)


Yup, there’s a new Little Women adaptation just hitting American shores — a TV miniseries created by the BBC. I watched the three-part series as aired in the UK last year, Americans are getting a two-part-er, which makes me worry they’re editing things down for us glare… This version was made by various Brits: producer Colin Callender (Wolf Hall, Howards End), and scriptwriter Heidi Thomas (Call the Midwife). And their goal seems to have been to stay as true to Louisa May Alcott’s novel as possible. So, how does this version measure up?

    I saw it also. Felt it was really rushed in the last episode. No character development for Professor Bhaer at all.

    Pretty sure it’s three episodes for PBS, not two. It definitely is three on my Passport subscription – I’ve watched them all already.

    I wish I was able read the entire review as I have also written one on my blog and wanted to know others’ opinions. I guess I’ll wait for it to be available.
