Little Women

Marmee March has four children: Meg, the sensible one, Josephine, the tomboyish writer with a lust for life, Beth, the so-called shy girl who has enough extroversion in her to go to a poor family's house, and Amy, the extroverted loudmouthed selfish girl who loves art. Together they brave their poor surroundings (haha, they think it is poor) and survive without the man of the house. Meanwhile, trying to insinuate himself into their lives is Laurie, a good looking very rich neighbor who is being tutored by another good looking man who fancies Meg. Laurie loves Jo and Amy is jealous. The girls do little betrayals to each other but still love each other in the end.

Continuity mistake: When Jo returns home from New York after she learns Beth is sick, she enters the room and Marmee stands up to hug her. When they hug, Marmee's arms are between them. In the next shot, they're around Jo then they switch back to being between them.
