Overview

From Academy Award-nominated writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird, Frances Ha) comes a timely and utterly timeless new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale of four sisters on the brink of womanhood. It’s the 1860s in New England and the March sisters – Jo (Saoirse Ronan), Meg (Emma Watson), Amy (Florence Pugh) and Beth (Eliza Scanlen) – are coming of age in the aftermath of the American Civil War. Each determined to live life on their own terms, they wrestle with artistic ambition, bad haircuts, first love, financial hardship, grave illness, absent Christmas presents and the dashingly handsome Laurie (Timothée Chalamet) – all under the watchful eye of their loving matriarch Marmee (Laura Dern) and fearsome Aunt March (Meryl Streep).

"A triumph ... Greta Gerwig's effervescent spin finds freshness in between the pages. She makes it her own—you’ll want to make it yours, too"
— Time Out
"Rich, bustlingly populated and passionately devoted ... a wonderfully warm, funny and heartfelt version of Louisa May Alcott’s coming-of-age classic"
— The Guardian
"Warm but never wishy-washy, cosy without being cutesy, this is a superb adaptation of the source and further evidence that Gerwig is the real deal"
— Empire

Why You Should See This Film

In the superbly gifted hands of Greta Gerwig this eighth film adaptation of Little Women is like a crackling fireplace — enormously comforting and sparkling with restless energy all at once. In everything from its warmly funny screenplay to its unexpected chronological shifts to the ingenious costuming of Ronan, this is a fresh cinematic take that nonetheless demonstrates Gerwig’s adoring devotion to the original text. Beyond Ronan’s fiery lead performance, keep a particular eye on Florence Pugh (Midsommar), the incomparable Laura Dern, and French heartthrob Louis Garrel (A Faithful Man) as the simply irresistible tutor Friedrich Bhaer.
