“One of the 5 best films of the year. At once faithful and blissfully liberated, this beautiful interpretation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel is the story of a woman finding her voice, directed by one who already has”—Manohla Dargis, NY Times. Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) is headed back to the Oscars (along with her fantastic cast: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep) with her smashing new film, a very up-to-the-minute adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women. Drawing on both the classic novel and other writings of Alcott, Gerwig’s delightful movie unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In writer-director 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. “This is a film in love with its characters’ passions, a rich and effortlessly vibrant examination of the four March “little women” and the ways they’re practically bursting with the innocent it’s-happening-right-now joy of being young and alive”—Kenneth Turan, LA Times. PG. 135 Min.
