A beloved classic tale of love and sisterhood, director Greta Gerwig brings us an emotional, heartwarming and witty adaptation of the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott. Little Women stars Saoirse Ronan as Jo, Emma Watson as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy, Eliza Scanlen as Beth, with Timothee Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

Garnering six major academy award nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress (Saoirse Ronan) and Best Supporting Actress (Florence Pugh), Greta Gerwig’s Little Women also landed nominations for Best Adapted screenplay, Best Original score and Best Costume Design.

Producer Amy Pascal is thrilled with the film’s six nominations. “I’m so proud of Greta. I’m so proud of Saoirse and Florence and Jacqueline and Alexandre,” Pascal told The Hollywood Reporter.  She elaborates that she has never had a more inspiring experience professionally than working with Gerwig. “Her brain is on fire constantly. Talking to her is like being on Wikipedia. She is firing on all cylinders at all times. She’s incredibly well read. She knows everything about literature, theater, mathematics, geometry — I’ve never met anybody like that. She gets ideas and they spring out of her head and flower in a way that is truly exhilarating.”

Pascal concludes, “It’s the perfect time for this movie because women are talking more than ever about choices, about how to be, about money, about what power is and about how we get along with men.  Greta brings all this into the film by staying true to author Louisa May Alcott.  She said, ‘I want to make a movie unlike any other.  I want to make a movie from the book and if you go back to the book, it’s more controversial, funnier and darker than you think, and I want to make a movie that feels that real.’”

And in celebration of its Oscar nominations, Little Women will hold whole-day sneak previews in selected cinemas across the Philippines on Monday & Tuesday, February 10 & 11 (ahead of its grand opening on February 19).  The movie-going public is advised to check with their favorite cinemas for the screening hours.  Tickets will be available at regular admission prices.

Little Women premiered in Indonesia last year on Christmas day and in Singapore last January 16. The film was released in Thailand on January 9, 2020. For Malaysia and Philippines, the film will premiere on February 16 and 19 respectively.
