"And they've got ambition and talent as well as just beauty".
The first trailer for Greta Gerwig's "Little Women" hit the internet Tuesday at noon, giving audiences their first look at the star-studded project, which spent months filming in MA previous year.
We see each of the sisters' passions throughout the trailer, and how being a woman in 1860's New England adds road blocks to their respective paths. They even befriend a young neighbor Laurie (Chalamet), who is instantly welcomed in the tight-knit family unit made up of the tomboyish Jo, the eldest Meg (Emma Watson), the kind-hearted Beth (Eliza Scanlen), and the spoiled Amy (Florence Pugh). The first trailer for the film is now online.
Despite Jo's feelings about marriage and a woman's role in 1860's society, there is a clear love story involved in Little Women.
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author's alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In fact, I anticipate that Little Women will be a major force come awards season, which would be no small feat. The film opens December 25th and also stars Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Bob Odenkirk, and Chris Cooper.
