Little Women ★★★★

Buoyed by Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite, I went into this hoping for something with definite flavour and flair despite its period trappings. 

Often, historical dramas hinder realism and resonance under a claustrophobic formality. And while to some extent Greta Gerwig succumbs to this, the end result remains amicably entertaining, appropriately incisive at times, and even (admittedly) resonant.

Sidenote: the offical second entry to the FPWAFCCU (Florence Pugh wears a flower crown cinematic universe)
