The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Writer-director Greta Gerwig 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.
The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, Meryl Streep, Bob Odenkirk, Louis Garrel, James Norton, Chris Cooper, Abby Quinn and Tracy Letts.
Little Women is scheduled for cinematic release on the 25th December 2019 in the US and the 26th December 2019 in the UK and Ireland.
