Jo March reflects back and forth on her life, telling the beloved story of the March sisters - four young women each determined to live life on their own terms.
Review of Little Women by Peter Walkden
Based on the well-known novel, Little Women focuses on four sisters who share many challenges and hard times. While the film tells many stories from all its characters, the lead in this film is one of the sisters named Jo March (Saoirse Ronan). Jo is a writer who one day hopes to write her own novel. Her biggest challenge is dealing with the people who tell her that her writing isn't good enough or when others suggest making alterations and changes. She also writes to earn money for her family, providing stories to a local newspaper. Joining Jo on this journey are her three sisters- Meg (Emma Watson), Beth (Eliza Scanlen) & Amy (Florence Pugh).
Little Women is consistently enjoyable and the dialogue between all four sisters is stunning. It always feels believable and natural. The storytelling leads to audience member feeling sad one moment and then enjoying a heartfelt, joyful moment the very next. This great combination is a result of director Greta Gerwig's storytelling and is a credit to her. Greta Gerwig's last movie was Lady Bird (2017), another film of which I am a fan.
The actors, leading and supporting (especially Meryl Streep and Timothee Chalament), deliver excellent performances. Backing this up is the wonderful costuming and set designs which I also could not fault.
Overall, this film is definitely worth your attention. It is a true piece of cinema at its finest, bringing a great combination of drama and joy.

Review of Little Women by Christopher Pattison
Director Greta Gerwig follows up her amazing directorial debut ‘Lady Bird’ with a compelling, well-crafted adaptation of the Louisa May Alcott classic ‘Little Women’ proving she is one of the best in the business at the moment. The cast are perfect with Saoirise Ronan as Jo March standing out as a well-rounded character, giving the nuance and subtle touch we have come to expect from her caliber of acting. The rest of the cast are fantastic as well with the likes Emma Watson, Timothe Chalamat, Florence Pugh and Laura Dern rounding out the cast list. If you are a fan of the source material than you will love this film and if you are just after a heartfelt period piece than you will love it all the same. This is a great film with something for everyone to enjoy!
