Movie afternoon with Gertie.

Have never read the book and came in blind. It made made me laugh, made me cry. And looks amazing to boot. This isn't reverential to the text, more focused on capturing the mind and spirit of these women. Boldly the story is told in non-chronological order, which really worked for me. The moving back-and-forth in time highlights the emotional cycles of the sisters.

The casting is heaven-sent - they just keep appearing and all arriving with their 'A game'. But Pugh once again steals the show. She oozes Amy's vanity and selfishness, but also shows her intelligence and resilience.

An intelligent film is one that makes us show empathy towards people's imperfections. This is a beautiful, all-encompassing cinematic achievement. Who wouldn't want to spend time in the March household?
