Little Women

Four sisters navigate post-Civil War America and their own paths in life.


Why watch this film?

'Little Women', by Louisa May Alcott, is a classic of American literature, read by generations and generations of girls since its release in 1861. There have also been several adaptations for cinema and TV. Here, we have the version of director Greta Gerwig (from 'Lady Bird: A Hora de Voar'), which brought together a star-studded cast: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Laura Dern and Meryl Streep, as well as appearances by Timothée Chalamalet (from 'Call Me By Your Name') Bob Odenking ('Breaking Bad') and Louis Garrel ('The Formidable'), among others. The result is a film full of soul, romance, lightness and great performances (especially Saoirse, for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe), in a story that moves us from the small facts of everyday life. It is worth noting that Greta (who also signs the adapted screenplay) adopted a non-linear path to tell the story, which differs from the book - and which requires more attention from the viewer to understand the different passages of time. That's why the way we know the story of the March family and their young women happens differently from previous versions. Highlights include the excellent period reconstruction, including costumes and sets, and also the beautiful photography, signed by Yorick Le Saux (from 'Eternal Lovers' and 'Above the Clouds'). The original soundtrack by Alexandre Desplat (Oscar winner for 'The Shape of Water') jumps to the ears.
