    ★★★½

    Decided to watch this after loving Pugh in Midsommar and Little Women, and she’s great again in this. Rightfully rejecting the abusive strictures of the patriarchal property exchange that was her 19th century marriage, she goes on to forsake many more norms while seeking out her own desires.

    An incredibly poignant and heartwarming film, written and performed by an ensemble that makes the 19th century setting feel shockingly modern and relevant without any wonky anachronisms. The whole cast is amazing, but Ronan and Pugh as Jo and Amy are particularly great. I’m generally not interested in domestic dramas set in this era, but I couldn’t get enough of this.
