Arvida Book Co.’s Movies n’ Books series caps off a successful year of films with Greta Gerwig’s modern classic, Little Women.
In the years after the Civil War, Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) lives in New York and makes her living as a writer, while her sister Amy (Florence Pugh) studies painting in Paris. Amy has a chance encounter with Theodore (Timothée Chalamet), a childhood crush who proposed to Jo but was ultimately rejected. Their oldest sibling, Meg (Emma Watson), is married to a schoolteacher, while shy sister Beth (Eliza Scanlen) develops a devastating illness that brings the family back together.
Gracefully adapted from Louisa May Alcott’s beloved novel, the timeless beauty of Little Women shines through Gerwig’s bracingly tender vision.
Little Women screens Thursday, December 21st.
