Little Women

Little Women ★★★★½

Louisa May Alcott's Little Women has always been a relevant story about sisterhood, family, growing up, friendship, and a journey of finding one's own voice. And in this new reimagination, Greta Gerwig manages to excellently honor and capture that spirits while at the same time giving her bold spin on it, rejuvenating the structure and taking a big risk that shouldn't have worked had it's handled with lesser hands.

Every detail is crafted masterfully, and there are plenty of overwhelming emotions that the film will offer — joy, happiness, sadness, and more joy. But what eventually envelopes them all is the stellar performances from the cast, especially Saoirse Ronan and Laura Dern's portrayal of Jo and Marmee that are so textured and rich I wanna deposit it in my bank account. By the time you get to the end of the journey of this March sisters, you will feel grateful that this kind of film exists.
