Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, four sisters each with a vastly different personality, grow up in close confines in an intensely loving household. Their differing experiences of young womanhood, in an era weighted by societal expectations, reflect upon their wilfully individual personalities. Themes of family devotion, enduring resolve, laudable triumphs and the ultimate tragedy make this beloved story of the March sisters a timely classic. Weaving together the emboldening streams of Louisa May Alcott’s nineteenth-century novel, director Greta Gerwig (Ladybird) gives this adaptation of Little Women a renewed sense of emphatic empowerment in an ode to the unwavering bond of sisterhood. With an all-star cast, including Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Emma Watson, Laura Dern and Meryl Streep.
