I spent the weekend at my fathers house and let me tell you, movies look so much better on a 55-inch screen. Men and their TVs, I’m starting to think there’s something to it!
Here’s a great piece of trivia, apparently Christina Ricci auditioned for the role of young Amy but it was given to Kristen Dunst instead, a decision I can understand, is easy to believe that a young Dunst would be more conventional beautiful than a young Ricci would once Amy finally marries Laurie.
And now for my favorite quote which is delivered by Susan Sarandon in the role as the mother ‘Mrs. March’ or ‘Marmee’.
If you feel your value lies in being merely decorative, I fear that someday you might find
yourself believing that’s all that you really are. Time erodes all such beauty, but what it cannot diminish
is the wonderful workings of your mind: Your humor, your kindness, and your moral courage.
These are the things I cherish so in you. I so wish I could give my girls a more just world.
But I know you’ll make it a better place.
