LITTLE WOMEN Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms — is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March. _ There's this curt age-old screenwriting axiom that goes, "Write what you know." It not only means tackling a subject matter you're familiar with on a technical level, but a story you have a burning desire in your heart to tell. And you can tell from this preview alone, 'Little Women' is bleeding with Greta Gerwig's frustrations and ruminations on the stifling female condition as put upon by men and society by extension. There's also the aesthetic choice of juxtaposing a period setting with contemporary language and behaviour that I quite fancy. And that is also quite Greta Gerwig-y lol. Fresh off the heels of 'Ladybird,' Greta is slowly and steadily shaking out to be one of those quirky auteurs operating on the fringes of Hollywood while delivering seminal pieces of art poco a poco. It's a foregone conclusion at this point that 'Little Women' is an Oscar player and possibly Winner, should competition want for a strong, heartfelt, and timely message as this one houses. Also starring Bob Oedenkirk and Chris Cooper and adapted from the Louisa May Alcott 1868 novel, 'Little Women' enters theaters 25th of December.
