AFI Movie Club: LITTLE WOMEN (2019)

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel by about a family of four girls growing up in Concord, MA, during the Civil War, LITTLE WOMEN (2019) is directed by Greta Gerwig and features AFI Life Achievement Award honoree Meryl Streep as the family’s cantankerous Aunt March. 

Honored with an AFI AWARD in 2019 as one of the year’s best motion pictures, the formal rationale said that, “LITTLE WOMEN infuses a literary classic with new life – adapting Louisa May Alcott’s immortal words into a tale for our times. Greta Gerwig’s mastery of the material allows for her vision to soar while never straying from Alcott’s self-stated themes – “domesticity, work and true love.”  This monumental achievement is brought to life by a creative ensemble of infinite talent, but the story belongs to Saoirse Ronan’s Jo March – a character that rises from the pages of the past to stand tall as a heroine for all genders and generations.
