This movie does not need any explanation: it follows the life of Jo March in post-Civil War New York, with flashbacks revealing details about her life with her cities. Jo travels back to her house to nurse her sister Beth, and the story is a heart-touching rendition of sisterhood, growing up to become a woman, relationships, friendships and family. Everyone can relate to someone in the story, and it’s relatability has persisted throughout the decades, which is why Greta Gerwig remade the movie in 2019.
