Review by JI Reporter Sophia Virgillito
The current movie “Little Women” is an adaptation of the book by Louisa May Alcott.
It is rated PG-13 and was released on Dec. 25, 2019 in theaters.
The movie depicts four sisters going through life together. It shows their bond between each other and their love lives as they grow up. The four sisters all have different personalities and are easy to relate to.
The movies main character is Jo March, and her sisters: Meg, Beth and Amy.
Personally, my favorite March sister is Meg because she is strong-willed in making her own decisions in life, along with her other sisters. She is also played by actress Emma Watson, who I love!
This movie illustrates a lot of girl power and it is perfect if you’re looking for an empowering film filled with confidence and perseverance.
“Little Women” is a very girl-oriented movie. The current adaptation is casted and directed by Greta Gerwig, who has directed the movie “Lady Bird” and starred in the television series “How I Met Your Mother.”
This movie attracts people of many ages because of its modern elements, specifically the cast. The four sisters are played by Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Stanlen. Some other familiar faces are Laura Dern, Meryl Streep and Timothée Chalamet.
This movie attracts a wide audience of both genders, a range of ages and different types of personalities. It is a very good film to watch with family, on a date night or even a girls night out.
After watching, I would definitely recommend! I rate it 8.8/10. I loved the girl power in it and the different personalities of the sisters, along with the historical and romantic elements, but the movie did have a couple boring scenes.
“Little Women” has been nominated for best adaptive screenplay and best picture in the 2020 Oscars.
