Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that has been praised as it draws on both the classic novel and the writings of author Louisa May Alcott, but also takes a bold new approach to unfold as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life as an adult.

In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each
determined to live life on her own terms – is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars extraordinary young female actors Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen, along with Timothee Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

Without sacrificing any of the story's period charm or authenticity, [Gerwig] adds a contemporary feel that can appeal to the book's devoted fans and its sceptics alike.
