Greta Gerwig · USA · 2019 · 135 mins · G

Greta Gerwig’s take on Louisa May Alcott’s novel is intelligent and fleet, refreshing if not radical, and as organic in its feminist convictions as it is in its depiction of close-knit sororal love. As is always the case with Little Women, its events play out against the dubious backdrop of the Civil War, making the insularity of the March sisters’ joys and tragedies harder to stomach if one thinks too hard about the world outside. Still, the story’s specificity—to the experiences of the female members of one poor white family from Massachusetts, both in wartime and in its immediate aftermath—has always been the point: It was at one time considered to be a story not worth telling. A great deal of the movie’s brilliance springs from its perfect casting. If Saoirse Ronan’s Jo is extraordinary, it should be noted that Florence Pugh’s Amy is equally revelatory, a reimagining of one of literature’s all-time-greatest brats that makes her not just sympathetic, but appealing. As for Laurie, one cannot think of an actor better suited to the role at present than Timothée Chalamet. He is the film’s great beauty, and the camera loves him. Laurie is charming, maddening, and very good at lounging on various kinds of nineteenth-century furniture. Of all of Little Women’s reinventions, this is the most necessary, and the loveliest.—The New Republic

“Gerwig has imagined the novel back to its roots, as the story of not just one woman but all the women Louisa May Alcott many have lived with or known or been. It is an offering—to her, to them, and to us.” –The Boston Globe

“An absolutely lovely film that will make you feel so extremely good walking out of it.”—FilmWeek
