Little Women, which sadly did not take home the Oscar glory the makers would have hoped for, is adapted from the famous Louisa May Alcott novel. It follows the lives of four sisters during the American Civil War. including the protagonist, Jo, who wanted to be a writer and shunned the expectations of women at that time. The movie may have left cinemas, but is it available anywhere online to stream, or to buy on DVD and Blu-ray?
Little Women was released in cinemas on Boxing Day, meaning it will be some time before it is available to watch at home.
It has not been announced if the movie will make it to Prime or Netflix, however it will likely be available to rent via Amazon or buy on iTunes at some point given it has now left ciemas.
This means those who unluckily missed it in cinemas may have a little while to wait.
However, given the movie was an Oscar nominee, there may be some cinemas who play special screenings to honour this, so fans should check their local cinema just in case.
The BBFC writes: “Very mild threat includes sight of a girl falling through ice on a frozen pond; she is quickly rescued.
“There is a mild scuffle between sisters. There is a passing reference to hanging, as well as an oblique reference to working in a ‘cathouse’.
“A character dies and people are seen grieving.”
Overall, the film is lighthearted and not particularly upsetting, therefore most children should enjoy the adaptation and not find much to upset them – however all parents should consider their own child’s needs before taking them along.
