Writer-director Greta Gerwig presents this new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel about four sisters growing up at the end of the American Civil War.
As the March sisters struggle to live their lives on their own terms, they all face challenges, both similar and different. Jo wants to be a writer; Meg longs to find love and raise a family; Amy wants to paint and to marry well; and gentle Beth wants to play piano and for nothing to change. But change it does as love, poverty, illness and sibling rivalry all come calling, forcing the sisters to learn many life lessons.
Gerwig’s joyful retelling, which features a stellar cast, is bound to become a firm family favourite.
