Little Women

Dir. Greta Gerwig. USA, 2019. 2h 15m. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet, Emma Watson, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Mery Streep.

The beloved story of the March sisters, four determined young women growing up in 19th-century America, is sensitively retold as a timely and timeless classic. Greta Gerwig’s empowering literary adaptation is ablaze with passion, humour, and bold feminist convictions. Gorgeously filmed and supported by wonderful performances, this grand period drama still feels fresh some 150 years after the book's publication. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Film & Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as five BAFTAs.

‘It's Little Women's deep generosity that cements it as a cinematic achievement.’ ★★★★★ Clarisse Loughery, The Independent

‘This is such a beguiling, generous film from Gerwig. There is a lot of love in it.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
