Little Women has been called one of the greatest books ever written. Now, it’s getting the cinematic treatment.
Sony Pictures Entertainment has released the first trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s acclaimed novel, Little Women.
Starring Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, and Meryl Streep, the film follows the March sisters as they grow up and grow old.
The official synopsis for Little Women is below:
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms — is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
The adaptation, which marks the eighth of its kind, will be hitting theaters at Christmas. Will you be watching?
