Saoirse Ronan's natural Irish accent is sometimes momentarily audible when Jo is angry and shouting. See more »
Of course this is the kind of movie that could only been directed by a woman. Lovely images, lovely girls, lovely scenes. And besides the true merit of the film it was time to see a movie without explosions, bombs, cuffs, kicks or any kind of blows. There is just only love, friendship, sentiments and nice feelings. Of course this movie portrays in a very realistic way another era whose uses and behaviours have nothing to do with the present ones. This is the story of four sisters and their mother whose relationship with each other reveals a friendly family. despite the fact that they are very different from each other in their thoughts, ideas, preferences and habits. One of the best movie of 2019.
