One of American cinema’s most compelling performers is emerging as one of its most incisive directors. Greta Gerwig follows up the success of her solo debut feature Lady Bird with an adaptation of Little Women. Working from her own screenplay, Gerwig draws upon the classic novel and the writings of its author Louisa May Alcott, to tell the story of the four young March sisters in 1860s New England in the aftermath of the American Civil War. Re-teaming with her Lady Bird director, Saoirse Ronan’s Jo March is at the centre, joined by Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen as her on-screen sisters, with the ever-fabulous Laura Dern as Marmee March. The film has been earning plaudits wherever it has screened, with The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw praising it as “beguiling and generous” and Little White Lies going as far as to name it “one of the great modern literary adaptations.”
