'LITTLE WOMEN' Greta Gerwig delivers a story that shows us that love isn't all a Women is fit for.

Saoirse Ronan as Jo March and Timothée Chalamet as Theodore "Laurie" Laurence in the new LITTLE WOMEN film from Columbia Pictures .

LITTLE WOMEN Directed by Greta Gerwig | PG 2h 15m | NO post-credit scene


Saoirse Ronan's acting in Greta Gerwig's "LITTLE WOMEN" is surely one of the most scintillating performances in the last decade. Without it, the film would fall short. With it, I can't help but feel similar emotions "Jo" is feeling inside. Not for a second, do I begin to doubt Jo's ambition for more. It's sometimes hard to stop and think that for some reason she is acting rather she seems to be living as Jo March a character originally created by Louisa May Alcott published in 1868.

Louisa May Alcott released the first of two versions of "Little Women" in 1868 and 1869. It was originally regarded as a "dull" tale by Thomas Niles (the publisher). Later that night Thomas Nile's niece Lilly Amy read the tale and really enjoyed it . The next step, was to have a finished manuscript printed and published, to which reached immediate success, which surprised both Nile and Alcott.

The story is set in Massachusetts and begins in the 1860's, in a winter during the Civil War. The March family introduced as a family living in "poverty" in a giant house filled with decorations, Christmas ornaments and a live in family cook all while sitting around a fireplace. The time was difficult it was cold and their father was off at war which meant the four March sisters "Jo, Beth, Amy and Meg were left with their Mother Marmee to find their own calling.

Little by little we begin to meet each sister and get a sense of who they are. Although the novel declares Jo a "tomboy" I believe Gerwig sees her in a more modern yet different point of view, a strong and ambitious struggling writer
