“Little Women” (2019) Is A Special Geta Gerwig’s Adaptation
The film “Little Women” is an adaptation of a novel with the same title written by Louisa May Alcott in 1868. This Greta Gerwig’s film is an adaptation of the 7th film before there have been many versions of it. Now, what makes the difference? Of course, Greta brought the film gang from “Lady Bird” (2018) Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet, and also a row of casts that topnotch into this film.
Maybe you already know the story of four sisters, Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth. Telling each character solidly, Jo has a strong stance and she wants to be a writer, Meg who aspires to be an actress, Amy who wants to be a famous painter and shy Beth who likes to play the piano.
The four characters were successfully portrayed by Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, and Eliza Scanlen. Their chemistry really woke up. Like real siblings, every scene manages to touch the hearts of most audiences.
Some of you might know the end of the film, but Greta Gerwig managed to tell a classic story so beautifully and neatly. With the flow back and forth, the audience’s feelings are really stirred. Every moment feels washed away. Greta also knows very well how to provoke laughter with witty scripts coming out of the mouths of Jo, Amy, and Aunt March.
It must be admitted that Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh are competing to be the best in this film. They both stand out and excellent. Saoirse’s acting was undoubtedly a stubborn Jo, plus Florence who was stunning as a spoiled, selfish girl and don’t forget the humorous Amy. They are all very talented.
Rows of the cast in this film are really perfect, and the main character feels right. Plus the supporting character Timothée Chalamet as Laurie who is lonely in her big house. Then there is Laura Dern as Marmee, a kind-hearted and calming mother. Well, lastly there is the figure of Meryl Streep as Aunt March who always successfully invites laughter when she talks.
