Synopsis

The beloved story of the March sisters, Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth—four young women each determined to live life on their own terms. The film draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.

Gerwig brought her talents to a canny remake of a feminist “chick flick” already in progress.

Gerwig’s Little Women is an adaptation for a new century. She has reimagined the narrative, cutting it into large chunks and reordering them so Alcott’s story is told out of sequence. This was a gamble with a book that is familiar to readers all over the world, and it works. The film is something of a masterpiece, with long, loping scenes shot on location in Massachusetts.

The editing is like something out of eighteenth-century marquetry, with every little piece cut up and nested into another one. The result can be bewildering. But, if you remember Alcott’s story, you realize that most of this editing is thematic.
