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.

Adults Explain Which Things Every Teenager Should Know

We often look back on our teenage years with mixed emotions.

Our final years where we could enjoy our youth, and live largely without responsibility and just enjoy being a child and all that came with it.

Of course, we might also look back on things we did as teenagers which we are less than proud of today.

Or things we wish someone had told us, so that we may have avoided falling into those unhappy situations.

We all pretended to be sick at least once when we were children to get out of going to school to avoid a test, game, or assembly we'd been dreading.

Some people still might not have given up the habit of feigning illness, as a means of avoiding work or other occasions that they are less than eager to attend.

Sometimes, simply telling people that you're "sick" is all the information you need to share to get out of it.

Whether or not more concrete proof is needed, others might go a step further in faking their ailment, be it a cold or fever, and often pull off fairly convincing performances.

Sometimes even fooling a doctor.

Every kid has their own strengths and talents. However, in school, some of us are singled out as being ‘gifted.’

This could mean a variety of things, from getting exceptionally good grades to having a unique way of thinking or understanding topics that aren’t seen in other students.

Often, when a student is labeled “gifted,” it is assumed they will be successful in later life.

However, Reddit has proven that this is not always the case.

Sometimes gifted students are successful but to a normal degree. They have the same careers and achievements as students who weren't labeled gifted. Other times, these students are not successful at all and being labeled “gifted” ended up damaging.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.
