Little Women

Greta Gerwig’s sophomore directorial feature comes out on Christmas Day, and it genuinely has the potential to be the best cinematic adaptation of a novel of all time. Fresh off of her directorial debut, Lady Bird, but no stranger to screenwriting, Gerwig is known for capturing the chaos of adolescence and presenting it as one of the most beautiful things in the entire universe. Little Women, Gerwig’s adaptation of the classic American novel by Louisa May Alcott, promises to do the same. The cast is so star-studded it will blind you: Lady Bird alumni Saiorse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet, as well as Laura Dern, Emma Watson, Midsommar’s Florence Pugh, and the iconic Meryl Streep. Look out for: Timothée Chalamet wearing a Colin-Firth-as-Mr.-Darcy-esque flowy shirt, feminism, Timothée Chalamet and Saiorse Ronan walking majestically on some hills, a Golden Globe nominated score from Alexandre Desplat, and, of course, Timothée Chalamet.
