Don’t sleep on Little Women.
Writer/director Greta Gerwig‘s new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel doesn’t come out until Christmas, and while Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will dominate the box office around then, I’m guessing a new version of Little Women is going to earn a significant amount of attention in its own right.
