Greta Gerwig's film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel Little Women has been filming in Massachusetts for the last month. Portraying the March sisters are Emma Watson as Meg, Saoirse Ronan as Jo, Eliza Scanlan as Beth, and Florence Pugh as Amy.
Early set photos show the sisters walking in a winter scene. Even from just the photo, the distinct personalities of the sisters shine through. Watson's Meg is the picture of responsibility, while Ronan's Jo is ever the wild tomboy.
The story elicits a strong sense of nostalgia for some people.
Watson stepped in when Emma Stone had to step down due to scheduling issues. The film also stars Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper, and Laura Dern.
The set photos have people excited for this film.
The novel has been adapted several times over the last century, with different versions starring Katharine Hepburn and Winona Ryder. It is rare that an adaption of the story fairs poorly. The novel itself has been praised since its release for its depictions of the modern American woman.
This new adaptation is scheduled to be released December 25, 2019.
