Little Women

First slide

Elegant, vibrantly emotional adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's novel from writer-director Greta Gerwig. The familiar March sisters, Jo (Saoirse Ronan), Meg (Emma Watson), Amy (Florence Pugh) and Beth (Eliza Scanlen), are presented in the format of a non-linear memory play, with Jo, first shown as an adult writer, recalling the episodes that formed their characters and shaped their life decisions. The main storyline finds feckless Laurie (Timothee Chalamet) longing to marry Jo but ending up with Amy. Moviegoers who already loves these characters will get the lush presentation they hope to see. And Gerwig's occasional alterations prove she's equally adept at accurate history and subtle moral messaging.

Watch out for: Mature themes, including death.

Rated: A-II, adults and adolescents; MPAA: PG
