First Look At Greta Gerwig’s Big Screen Remake Of ‘Little Women’ Starring Meryl Streep And Emma Watson

Vanity Fair dropped an exclusive sneak peek of Greta Gerwig’s eagerly anticipated big screen remake of “Little Women” on Wednesday.

The film, which features an incredibly star-studded cast including Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern and Meryl Streep, is a remake of the original movie based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic book.

Saoirse Ronan, who also starred in Gerwig’s Oscar-nominated film “Lady Bird”, plays one of the lead characters in the flick; Jo March.

Meanwhile, Timothée Chalamet stars as the boy who ends up proposing to Jo; Laurie.

“Little Women” tells the tale of four sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy – growing up outside Civil War-era Boston.

Gerwig says of the movie: “This feels like an autobiography. When you live through a book, it almost becomes the landscape of your inner life. It becomes part of you, in a profound way.”

The director adds of Ronan and Chalamet’s characters: “Jo is a girl with a boy’s name, Laurie is a boy with a girl’s name.”

Continuing, “In some ways they are each other’s twins. They find each other before they’ve committed to a gender. It wouldn’t be wrong to call Saoirse handsome and Timothée beautiful. Both have a slightly androgynous quality that makes them perfect for these characters.”
