Amy, Joe, Beth and Meg are four sisters grappling with adolescence that begin the holiday season with their beloved mother but without their father figure, who works as a travelling evangelist. Set in the North American state of Massachusetts in the midst of the Civil War, 'Little Women' follows the March family as the four sisters discover love and the incomparable importance of familial ties. Writer and director Greta Gerwig has created a version of 'Little Women' inspired by the classic novel and other writings of Louise May Alcott, stories that are alluded to the film through the writer's iconic alter ego, Jo March, as she reflects on her life through fiction. In Gerwig's version, the beloved story of the March sisters, four young women determined to live their lives under their own rules, is timeless yet daringly modern. The movie is directed by Greta Gerwig ('Lady Bird', 'Nights and Weekends') and stars Timothée Chalamet ('Call Me By Your Name', 'A Rainy Day in New York'), Saoirse Ronan ('Mary Queen of Scots', 'On Chesil Beach'), Emma Watson ('Beauty and the Beast', 'The Circle'), Florence Pugh ('The Little Drummer Girl', 'Midsommar'), Eliza Scanlen ('Sharp Objects', 'Babyteeth'), Maryl Streep ('The Laundromat', 'Big Little Lies') and Laura Dern ('Marriage Story', 'Big Little Lies'), amongst others.
