In Little Women, Greta Gerwig couldn't have chosen a more beloved classic to adapt for her second feature as director, matched only by the strength of cast she's corralled.
Playing the four leads on the verge of womanhood are Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson and Sharp Objects' Eliza Scanlen.
Telling the tale of four daughters of a preacher in post-Civil War Massachusetts as they learn to love and live their own lives, this adaptation emphasises the novel's feminist message of self-determination.
With Laura Dern and Meryl Streep as the matriarchs of the March family, and Timothée Chalamet and Louis Garrel playing love interests, this is a beautiful (yet unfussy), poignant reimagining that will enchant a new generation.
