A trailer to watch this weekend is that of Greta Gerwig’s second directorial feature after Lady Bird titled Little Women.
Featuring Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Eliza Scanlen, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, Meryl Streep, and Florence Pugh; Little Women is a film adaptation of the 1868 novel of the same name by Louisa May Alcott.
An upcoming American coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Greta Gerwig, Little Women is produced by Sony Pictures.
The trailer of Little Women has drama, comedy, romance and ambition revolving around women; mainly focusing on Jo March’s(Saoirse Ronan) story of finding herself as she journey’s through life.
On reuniting with her Lady Bird cast, Saorise Ronan and Timothée Chalamet in the film, Greta Gerwig said in an interview to Entertainment Weekly, ““I just adore them. They are just spectacular as live actors, and there is some true pairing between them that feels like [it’s] in the tradition of a great cinematic pairing, “I don’t know what they do — I mean, it’s magic. I direct them, but it’s all there.”
On casting Emma Watson as Meg, the eldest of March sisters whose aspirations are mainly domestic, Gerwig said in the same interview, “To me, [Watson] embodies everything that I was interested in, in terms of who the March women were,She’s just smart. She’s on multi-governmental organizations that speak to the U.N., and she’s so thoughtful and present. She is way out there trying to do everything she can.”
Further stating that Meg is a character that is often misunderstood, and Emma Watson brought a new kind of emotional depth to the character of the oldest sister, Greta added,“In terms of what [Watson] did with the character, she has so much open-heartedness and so much love combined with that much intelligence, it’s heartbreaking and potent. Because she’s absolutely herself with understanding the struggle of who that character is.”
Little Women is slated to release in the United States on 25 December 2019.
