Little Women

Greta Gerwig / US, 2019 / 134 min.

Winter 1861. Jo March approaches a publisher. She will and must bring her book to the attention. Not an easy thing to do at a time when men are in charge. Director Greta Gerwig sketches an epic portrait of Jo and her sisters, women who claim a place for themselves. The life of the American novelist Louisa May Alcott was Gerwig's inspiration. Nominated for six Oscar categories, including Best Film and Best Scenario.
