Amy March is probably one of the most hated characters in literary history. The youngest of the March sisters who come of age during the Civil War in Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Amy was always a little bratty, a little spoiled, a little too typical of the kind of feminine girls that young female readers always abhorred. Everyone wanted to be strong-willed Jo, the “not like other girls” tomboy and protagonist of Little Women. So when Amy committed her infamous act of sabotage against Jo, she shot to the top of the list of most-hated literary characters of all time.

But could Greta Gerwig‘s upcoming Little Women give a more forgiving depiction of Amy March than she has received in the past? The new Little Women clip, which shows Florence Pugh as Amy giving Timothée Chalamet‘s Laurie an economics lesson, suggests as much.

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. Sony has unveiled a new clip from the movie that seems to represent a microcosm of Gerwig’s approach to this beloved story. Check it out below. Read More »

little women early buzz

Little Women has been positioned as an Oscar contender since its announcement — and with awards darling Greta Gerwig helming the adaptation of the Louisa May Alcott coming-of-age classic, and a star-studded cast led by Lady Bird’s Saoirse Ronan, how could it not be? The fact that Sony was positioning it for a Christmas release, that sweet spot where awards season and the holidays overlap, could only mean that the studio is confident in Little Women‘s awards contender status. And judging by the Little Women early buzz from press and industry screenings this week, they were correct.

There’s nothing little about the anticipation growing around Greta Gerwig‘s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s coming-of-age classic. Little Women has seen many an adaptation, but few as packed with talent as Gerwig’s upcoming feature film, which reunites the Oscar-nominated director with her Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet.

Finally, we get to see Ronan and Chalamet in action as Jo March and Theodore “Laurie” Laurence, respectively, doing lots of running and frolicking in the new trailer for Little Women finally released by Sony. Watch the Little Women trailer below.

Christmas has come early for fans of Louisa May Alcott‘s classic coming-of-age novel that has spawned countless screen adaptations and legions of lifelong fans. But no matter how many times the story of four sisters growing up in post-Civil War America is told, Little Women will always feel undeniably fresh. Even more so with Greta Gerwig‘s upcoming adaptation, which features Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet leading a stacked cast of rising talents and award-winning stars. As if the cast — and the prospect of a Lady Bird reunion — couldn’t get us excited enough, the debut of the first Little Women images look spectacular.

joker origin movie

Todd Phillips‘s origin movie about Gotham City’s Clown Prince of Crime now has an official title: Joker. Looks like the film took Sean Parker’s advice and dropped the “the.” (It’s cleaner.) They’re moving quickly on this one, because Joker, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, is coming to theaters next year.

Meanwhile, the wait to see Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie just got a couple of weeks shorter. Sony Pictures has shifted some release dates around on its calendar, and the result is a new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood release date, the long-delayed adaptation of The Crow biting the dust for seemingly the hundredth time, and some other additions that fans of Little Women and the Valiant comic Bloodshot might be interested to learn about.

What makes a story timeless? It’s a loaded question, with infinite answers, but there are certain through-lines when you take a monocled look. The stories that get retold, over and over ad nauseum, are elemental: hero’s journeys, love stories, arch enemies. Easily adaptable, impressionable by nature; no matter how they are told, how closely they adhere to origin, they feel new. Jesus, Hamlet, Jane Eyre. They are fables ripe with possibility.

When it was announced last week that Greta Gerwig’s follow-up to Lady Bird – her first solo feature as a writer and director, which earned her dual Oscar nods as a result – would be an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s seminal novel Little Women, there was a bit of a backlash. There are, to date, six film adaptations of Little Women, with a seventh – a modern retelling starring Lea Thompson – due later this year. Additionally, there have been four BBC miniseries based on the book – including one that came out just last year – a made-for-TV musical in 1958, a 2012 Lifetime movie, and several anime spinoffs. Why, some wondered, do we need another?
