In the years after the Civil War, Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) lives in New York City and makes her living as a writer, while her sister Amy March (Florence Pugh) studies painting in Paris. Amy has a chance encounter with Theodore "Laurie" Laurence (Timothée Chalamet), a childhood crush who proposed to Jo, but was ultimately rejected. Their oldest sibling, Meg March (Emma Watson), is married to a schoolteacher, while shy sister Beth (Eliza Scanlen) develops a devastating illness that brings the family back together.Written by
"Little Women" is empowering, refreshing and an absolutely lovely film backed by an incredible cast.
In this drama, the March sisters are four young women each determined to live life on their own terms. Based on the classic novel of the same name.
I had neutral feelings about "Little Women" as I walked in to take my seat, but in the end I thoroughly enjoyed this film. A sweet, sensitive and powerful film that will remain timeless like its source material. The cast of leads is terrific but Florence Pugh steals the show. Pugh will become one of the great leading ladies in the biz (see also "Fighting With My Family", "Midsommar"). "Little Women" is garnished with beauty and a joy to watch. You will fall in love with this film.
