Greta Gerwig brings to the screens a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 literary classic.
Four teenaged sisters (Amy - Florence Pugh, Meg – Emma Watson, Jo – Saoirse Ronan, Beth – Eliza Scanlen) and their mother, Marmee (Laura Dern), live in a new neighbourhood in Massachusetts in genteel poverty. Having lost all his money, their father is acting as a pastor, miles from home, involved in the American Civil War.
The women face their first Christmas without him, and their fortunes fluctuate from literary success to love, to chronic illness. Gerwig could well be the perfect director to bring this female-driven story to our 2020 screens, especially after her recent successes ‘20th Century Women’ and ‘Ladybird’.
