Today, we have more ‘movie news’ in the form of a new Little Women (2019) official trailer. Or so Youtube informs us. The trailer, which clocks in at 2+ minutes shows us the adventures of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March as we know them, and maybe a little bit as we don’t. Greta Gerwig will direct this one, which is already praised for its stellar cast. Set to drop December 2019, here’s a little bit about the “official” plot.
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.
As I watch the trailer, I must confess, I’m not immediately sympathetic to this version of the story. While, I like the timeless story, I don’t love how this one appears to tell the story. It looks to be on the edge of the classic tale that has lasted throughout its many generations. I also must confess… I’m not loving the costuming. I’m not sure if it’s going to be the “fit” of it, or the styling… but something just doesn’t look polished and quite “right.” Needless to say, my first impression isn’t glowing.
In the end, am I still curious? Yes. I also think that the cast seems to be pretty strong which is definitely in the good column.
