I watch it every year at Christmas and only once, so I don't get tired of it.
In every instance but this one, I prefer original books over movie versions. As soon as I hear the opening lines and the score of "Orchard House" I feel all swoony inside. This is also a visually stunning movie and the story, of course, is fabulous.
It makes me want to deliver food and firewood to the less fortunate with my sisters....
It kindles my lifelong devotion to Christian Bale. I love the Laurie character so much that I can even overlook Christian's horrible public behavior in the current century. I am convinced he would be a better person had he stuck to period pieces.
It makes me want to cuddle up by the fire to read the many pieces of correspondence that I receive.
Each year I want to implore Jo to please, pretty-please, just this one time, please choose Laurie..
She never does....
I've even now, come to terms with her choice of Professor Bhaer. In the books it works but in the movie I was crushed the first time.
The movie was done in 1994. Gabriel Byrne was 45 years old. In 1994 I was 22, Nowadays, a 45 year old man doesn't look half as bad as he did back then to me......
You must see this movie! Here is the trailer to get you started!
