No doubt, by now, anyone who is interested has seen the ‘hot off the press’ Little Women (2019) photos of Greta Gerwig’s upcoming adaptation of the classic. Still, I want to share them because period drama bliss! Set to release Christmas Day this year (who else is there??), this film is rumored to take a different approach than the popular Katherine Hepburn or 1994 adaptations.
The story is described as follows:
‘Little Women’ is based on the Louisa May Alcott novel of the same name and tells the story of the four March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—as they grow from children into women. The novel is seen as a sort of autobiography about Alcott’s own life, growing up with three sisters, and is one of the classics that kids (especially girls) grow up reading. And for Gerwig, the novel is incredibly personal, in a similar way as ‘Lady Bird.’ – The Playlist
The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, and Meryl Streep.
Some of these actresses I’ve seen in other roles, others I haven’t seen in anything. Most of all, I’m curious to see how this mostly fresh-faced cast brings this story to life. Because of the director and today’s modern age, I have a feeling this film won’t be exactly what I hope it to be, but I’m still curious, and am going to 100% (no questions) see it. I just hope the vision the director has of this one isn’t so far off course that it loses what the story is, and its charm.
This story is bittersweet, yes, but it’s also wonderful and complex and beautiful in so many ways. Does it foreshadow some more modern ideals? Yes, but that doesn’t mean these need to be explored at the cost of the beauty and charm. Also, who else thinks I should read the book before seeing this film??
Without further ado, here’s the NEW Little Women (2019) photos! You can scroll through the Instagram post below or visit Vanity Fair.

What do you think? Aren’t they all kinds of prettty!?
Basically, these look to be all the period drama bliss. I just hope the story has the same feels these images evoke. One thing I really want to see more of in this film is Jo’s relationship with the Professor. This is something I really wanted more of from the three hour miniseries (and I thought it would!), but alas, didn’t. So, now I’d like to know….
