Little Women

Cinema: Little Women

Director: Greta Gerwig; Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh; Genre: Drama, Romance; Age: 12+; Time: 75 minutes

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.

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.
