It was very difficult to understand. The music was too loud most of the time to hear what the actors were saying. When Tilly prayed to Byron? What was that? Isaiah writes about making gods ut of wood. I would have liked to see her praying to God, in thanksgiving.

Beware: The title of this movie is quite misleading. I had hoped to watch (I hate to put it so simply) an "old fashioned Thanksgiving" story, something nostalgic that would bring to mind early American days (and maybe some references to Christian values ??).For one, there is no mention of Jesus Christ or salvation in any way. It's the classic joke: the only time a Bible is pulled out pertains to a letter that was kept in the family Bible. For two, the story has very little to do with Thanksgiving at all (it's set at that time of the year). My husband called it a soap opera. Three generations of women are having a lot of emotional fights about their past and their future.It might be some people's cup of tea, but as long as the title remains the same, I am afraid people are bound to be disappointed by it.

This was a disappointment. it did not flow and was choppy - I guess made for TV first? Anyway, it was not what I was expecting. SHould have been called something else.Focus not truly on Thanksgiving. The relationship stuff between boy and girl was silly - a joke. Only saving part is that is was based on Alcott's book. Anxious to read book and see what movie left out. Just doesn't seem to have the depth Alcott's writing usually does.
