WATCH: First trailer for Greta Gerwig’s ‘Little Women’
The classic novel by Louisa May Alcott follows the four March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, played by Emma Watson (“Beauty and the Beast”), Saoirse Ronan (“Mary Queen of Scots”), Eliza Scanlen (“Sharp Objects”) and Florence Pugh (“Midsommar”) respectively, in 19th-century New England in the aftermath of the Civil War.
Writer-director Greta Gerwig’s (“Lady Bird”, “Frances Ha”) version stars Laura Dern (“Big Little Lies”) as the girls’ mother and Meryl Streep (“The Post”) as their wealthy aunt. Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me By Your Name”) plays the boy next door who is irresistibly drawn to the lively, loving family and their adventures, especially to passionate writer Jo.
The Sony Pictures film is set for release on December 2019.
Chris Cooper, Louis Garrel, Tracy Letts, James Norton and Bob Odenkirk also star. HM/JB
