Everyone owns their own castle in the air. Their castle is the place where they store their hopes and dreams. What varies from person to person is the road that leads to their castle. Some of us have short, easy trails. Its a straight line that takes us from where we are now to where we want to be in the future. Other people take a winding path with hills and valleys, detours and hidden passages. The road is difficult and surprising, but eventually, it reaches the castle. What is in your castle?
Sisters—and dreams—are unique in their ability to inspire, encourage and change the world.
For 150 years, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women has motivated women of all ages to dream together and celebrate family. Coming to theaters for the first time, a modern retelling of LITTLE WOMEN brings a new generation together with their mothers, sisters and friends.
From girls playing in the attic to women living with purpose, the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy—are committed to always supporting each other. Yet, growing up sometimes means growing apart.
An aspiring writer, Jo leaves for New York determined to publish a novel. In the wake of rejected draft upon draft, her editor challenges Jo to write about something more interesting—her family.
When tragedy brings the sisters back home, sticking together takes on new meaning. As Jo comforts her sick sister, Beth asks for one thing: a story.
Jo knows the perfect one … by heart. (Little Women The Movie)
Originally, I was planning a girl’s night with my daughter to watch one of my favourite classical movies, but my 2 sons begged to join us, so we made it a family affair. It was amazing to see the women I grew up loving, updated in a modern day scenario. Starring Lea Thompson as Marmee and Lucas Grabeel from High school musical, as Laurie, the movie modernizes the story with the use of devices like smartphones and computers, but it maintains the basic core values and the sense of family from the original story. The story flip flops back and forth between each sister showing them searching for their “castle in the air”. Through themes such as about growing up, falling in love, and finding your voice, this filmed resonated better with my older boys then DD7.
I recommend you grab your family and come together to experience this movie as one. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and learn how to be a strong family unit. In my opinion, this is one of the best adaptions of the classical novel!
