This paper discusses the 1994 film version of "Little Women" and compares it to the 1933 film version. The paper tries to determine how just a representation of the book each film is and in what way each version is characteristic of the period in which it was made.

From the Paper:

"'Little women' was written by Louisa May Alcott in 1868 and since then it has been one of the most talked and written about books. With readers obsessing over the novel for more than a century, the book has been adapted to cinema four times with the most last version coming out in 1994. The book and its cinematic versions revolve around four young sisters who grow up during chaotic times of Civil War. The most well known cinematic adaptation of the novel came out in 1933 with Katherine Hepburn in the lead as JO March. This version was universally accepted for being most faithful to the book. Subsequent versions of Little Women were not as powerful as this one yet they have their fair share of merits. In this paper, we shall discuss the 1994 version and compare it to the 1933 version of 'Little women'."
