Little Women, Big Movie
30 January 2020 | by MovieJunkie5See all my reviews

This review is coming from someone who doesn't know the book and never seen any other Little Women movie. I completely fell in love with the story, it's simplicity, emotional twists and drama. The performances are fantastic and talk about a cast, probably one of the best in 2019. Since Meryl Streep to Emma Watson, Timothée Chalamet, Florence Pugh, Laura Dern, Saoirse Ronan and even Chris Cooper looks good on this movie. The future of Hollywood is very well preserved with all this talent, so young and already so well established in the industry (Eliza too!). Loved all the performances, specially Saiorse who gives such a brilliant performance it goes beyong supporting actress. The costume design are always so beautiful and the cinematography gorgeous. Saying that Gerwig was overlooked is an understatement as everything she did was nominated except herself. Hope it does well in the Oscars but if not, it remains one of my favorite movies of 2019!
