This is the perfect time to bring back the 126-year-old "Little Women" saga, says Winona Ryder.

"Young girls, especially, don't have a lot of good role models, and they really get underestimated in the film industry," said Ryder.She plays the ambitious tomboy Jo in the version of "Little Women" that opens Christmas Day. The time-honored tale by Louisa May Alcott focuses on the post-Civil War saga of a mother and her four daughters.

"People think that they just want movies like `Pretty Woman,' when really they - at least the ones that I know personally - have been waiting for something that doesn't completely insult them," Ryder said.
