“Women, they have minds, and they have souls, as well as just hearts. And they’ve got ambition, and they’ve got talent, as well as just beauty. I’m so sick of people saying that love is all a woman is fit for.”

— Jo March, Little Women


When I was a child, I read Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women eagerly to find out what happened next. Neither governmental issues nor the setting that made us curious prompted our curiosity. Growing up in the frontal area is the theme of the book.

Despite the distinctive nation, culture, and period in which the story is set, what stands out to us most are the four March sisters – Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth. Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Alcott’s story likewise exhibits that same immortality and inclusiveness.

Even though the film is set in 1868, it feels like it is firmly rooted in the present day. The event could take place in any piece of today’s reality. It is a timely interpretation of a much-loved novel that’s both sharp and current without being too extreme.

Jo March, the main character of the play, is played by Saoirse Ronan. With Emma Watson’s portrayal of Meg March, you sympathize with her agony without being distracted by excessive showiness. Despite significantly less screen time and discourse, Elizabeth Scanlen’s portrayal of Elizabeth is similarly valued.

Florence Pugh plays Amy, who is a serious curve in this film. The progress Amy is finely balanced by her. The bratty, spoilt sister of a younger sister becomes a tough woman, the one who stands up for herself. I loved Meryl Streep’s portrayal of Aunt March, who is straightforward and straight to the point.

The caring Marmee March, played by Laura Dern, radiates warmth and protection. In the role of Laurie, Timothée Chalamet mixes just the right measure of innocence. Despite being smitten with Jo, he’s still perceptive enough to realize all the ground real factors.

With everything ambiguous about Jo and Amy, it is no big surprise. These are the people who leave the best impressions. It gives Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh a chance to fully explore their characters and give each a chance to shine.


Little Women: March Sisters, Little Women Movie Review
March Sisters: Elizabeth, Jo, Meg and Amy (Left to Right)

The four little ladies, who are total opposites from one another. Each of the four March sisters is talented with remarkable ability. They are additionally a token of the entanglements of placing women in a single section or declining to see them past the outrageous banalities of good and awful.

They live in a society where the main two decisions for ladies are marriage and death. The encounters, goals, wants, and desires of the women are multi-tinted despite sharing a last name, family, and home.

Set in the 1800s…

In his portrayal of Jo, Ronan captures her quintessence as an irregularity. During Gerwig’s very first scene, she successfully sets up the breathtaking decision that Jo has to make. No matter what, that doesn’t dampen Jo’s spirits. The reverberative of her burning desire to live autonomously and follow her fantasies continue to resonate with women even today.

One of the film’s many highlights is undoubtedly her exhibition. The way Ronan depicts Jo’s inside clashes and weaknesses, he doesn’t overlook anything. Despite seemingly insurmountable resistance, she advances in pursuit of her fantasies. In addition, all the leading ladies of the period are portrayed as displaying the most subtle texture in all of their characters.

Little Women is a gesture for tolerating the assorted variety inside sexual orientation. And not being critical, particularly with regards to women. Meg (Emma Watson) might need to escape from the life of need and neediness yet that doesn’t make her a vacuous opportunist.

While Jo (Saoirse Ronan) is the most touchy to the necessities of the family. Still, it doesn’t mean she is a holy person who will forfeit her fantasies. Amy’s savage indignation doesn’t strip her of weaknesses and neither do the grand ethics of Jo make her exemplary. 


In the book, an amazing hover, Jo was and still is the change conscience for a considerable lot of us needing to not face the marriage question. The rough and tumble one, not given to “hides and quills” yet sobbing at the loss of her exquisite long tresses.

Needing to outline her particular manner throughout everyday life. Certain about what she needs yet scrutinizing her own decisions in snapshots of outrageous forlornness. Fleeing from marriage yet not being respected is reckless for that. The chance of fellowship among man and lady is another effective strand.

The film’s account remains genuine to its source material and holds its contemporary pith. While it’s not radical, it is invigorating in its methodology of naturally underlining its women’s activist feelings. Nonetheless, the steady to and fro of the course of events is somewhat perplexing.

Particularly, because even in the seven years hole, most characters appear to be identical, aside from Amy, who develops in her dressing and design sense also. The itemizing of the sets, ensembles, and areas, adds to the authenticity. The rich foundation score raises Gerwig’s narration. Exhibits with strong content and charming characters set this place apart.

‘Little Women’ is a significant retelling of a great success that is as graceful as it is genuine

The Marriage issue…

The story deals effectively with the issue of marriage as well. There is the customary view in the account coming from the general public itself — that ladies need to wed well. And the best way to remain unmarried is to be rich.

In any case, a long way from underlining it, the film takes a gander at it from an entertained separation and underscores the counter view — that marriage is a monetary suggestion all things considered. Which are all everlasting truths!

Like a normal subduing of the vixen bend? Or then again a vibe decent sentiment of the cloying sorts. It may not be tied in with causing trouble however about the expectations and conceivable outcomes inside the standard thing.


Alcott’s book and Gerwig’s film Little Women, end with an outlandishly cheerful and perfect goal. In any case, both underlay a confirmation that it hasn’t occurred at the expense of Jo’s soul or will being obstructed. She remains her own lady.
